Will be interesting to know if they do a pre-race swab on him. As being a category 1 result. Can't get any higher than a category 1.

I don’t understand this - Why is the dog not automatically scratched?

The dog is owned and trained by the same person correct?

The Commission sought significant information and evidence and following receipt of that information was satisfied that the transfer of ownership is a genuine one.

Wow went exceptionally wide along the back strait - is that his normal racing style?

Tommy was impregnable tonight. Wow threw everything he had at him. There was no stargazing by Wow...rather in giving his all he was forced to run wide off the bend because he was trying as hard as he could! Happens the same in motor racing!! What a contest from start to finish!!!!

He does get off the track down the back,but not normally that far off,& i still think he did stargaze at the hedge & crowd for a stride or two,as he passes the 500 boxes...he did similar in his semi imho.

Going on the reported miniscule levels of the Wow swab we trainers are all in danger. With so many drugs in the community there will be more positives through contamination. Like finding one grain of wheat in a silo.wash hands after handling bank notes?

From Peter Davis's Greyhound Recorder article

Under the rules of racing, Racing Analytical Services Ltd reports all positive swabs yet Wow’s level of metabolites to one of three banned substances was, wait for it, 0.00000000002 grams per ml … to the more educated .02 nanograms per ml.

There’s little doubt Wow’s positive swab was by means of inadvertent contact yet, on the structures in place, Karina Britton will lose the $75,000 winner’s purse for the Paws Of Thunder and the prospect of a Richmond Derby win ($40,000) was taken away.

Illicit drugs are commonplace and whether it be in a public bar, toilet facility, via bank notes or interpersonal contact, anybody can be exposed.

Police, doctors, nurses, teachers etc. are required to be drug free yet they function in workplaces which are often comprised by drug exposure.

And with such exposure, surely reporting levels for drug use for front line workers protects integrity and reputations … so why cannot it be the same for the racing industry?

Time has come for RASL to have a baseline level to determine inadvertent exposure as compared to administration.

Racing must be drug free. Swabbing protocols are in place to ensure integrity and incidence of illicit drugs in swabs is miniscule (something in the order of .01 per cent in NSW) yet Wow’s situation has brought extraordinary stress to all concerned.

Unfortunately there is no such thing as benefit of the doubt.
And whether its $75k or $1200, its the humiliation and the slander of character that turns passion into bitterness.

Sometimes I think you would be better off refusing a swab.

Was that amount found in both the A and B samples?

I’m confused as to how this all works
