Stewards Investigate Gelagotis

Wednesday, 6th May 2015

Meanwhile, trainer Peter Gelagotis is under investigation for the suspected raceday treatment of Axis Point at Warrnambool yesterday, reports racing.com. Stewards ordered the scratching of the mare from race nine on the advice of Racing Victoria's Compliance Assurance Team. "We visited there at 9am this morning (and then) came back at 1pm and the concern is the horse has received treatment today," RV chairman of stewards Terry Bailey said. "A syringe with amino acids has been confiscated." He added, "The explanation tendered by Mr Gelagotis, in our view, was not satisfactory, and based on the evidence that the compliance team had collected there was a prima facie case to suggest the horse has been treated and we weren't prepared to allow the horse to run under those circumstances." Samples have been taken from the horse and the investigation is expected to last about a week.
