RACE 2 [TF1280] : SUCCESSION

29 coded urine and 30 coded blood samples from the above-mentioned race meeting were received for analysis under the MRA Rules and Regulations.

All samples were analysed and none failed except for Sample Coded No 0053317 which revealed the presence of Mefenamic Acid and which was reported to have been taken from the horse, SUCCESSION, trained by Trainer M Freedman, which ran second in Race 2 on the above date.

On Sunday, 22 November 2015, Trainer Freedman was advised of the Analyst’s Report and his attention was drawn to the contents of MRA Rule 137 (1) relating to the Referee Samples. Trainer Freedman subsequently exercised his right to have SUCCESSION’s Referee Sample sent overseas for independent analysis. The independent analysis of the Referee Sample overseas confirmed the presence of Mefenamic Acid.

In terms of the Rules, SUCCESSION could not race again until cleared by the Stewards.

The Stewards acceded to Trainer M Freedman’s request to clear SUCCESSION for racing subject to the submission of a subsequent urine sample being free of any prohibited substance.

The SNTC Laboratory reported on 08 January 2016 that a sample which was submitted on Tuesday, 05 January 2016 for analysis revealed the horse, SUCCESSION, was clear of any prohibited substance and as such SUCCESSION was cleared for racing.

At the conclusion of an Inquiry on Thursday, 24 March 2016, Trainer Freedman was found guilty to a charge under MRA Rule of Racing 134(6)(a) in that he, as the Trainer of SUCCESSION, presented that horse which took part in Race 2 at the Singapore Turf Club Meeting on Friday, 30 October 2015, following which a urine sample taken from that horse failed a post-race screening which found the sample to contain the presence of Mefenamic Acid, a prohibited substance under the MRA Rules of Racing. Trainer Freedman was fined a sum of S$10,000 and was advised of his Right of Appeal.

In terms of Rule 134(11), SUCCESSION was disqualified from the race and the result amended accordingly.
