The National Horseracing Authority confirms that at an Inquiry held at its offices on Friday, 15 February 2019, Trainer Mr L J Human was charged with a contravention of Rule 73.2.3 in that he was the Trainer responsible for the horse SO GOOD when a specimen taken from this horse prior to the running of the 3rd race at the Flamingo Park Racecourse on 12 November 2018, disclosed upon analysis the presence of Salicylic Acid, which is a prohibited substance in terms of the Rules of the National Horseracing Authority of Southern Africa. Salicylic Acid is an analgesic and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory substance.


Mr Human pleaded not guilty to the charge but was found guilty of the charge.


The Inquiry Board, after considering all the evidence presented, as well as what was said in mitigation, ruled that Mr Human be fined the sum of R23 000 of which R8 000 is wholly suspended for a period of five years on condition that he is not found guilty of a similar contravention of the Rules during that period.


Furthermore in terms of Rule 72.3.2, SO GOOD has been disqualified from the said race and the provisions of Rule 67.7.8 shall apply.
