Glory and Honour
The BHA found that Glory and Honour had had a prohibited substance administered through the use of Gastrogard in a period too close to the race. Therefore Glory and Honour is disqualified from the 1200 Open Maiden for 4,5 and 6 year olds at Albrighton and Woodland (North) Point to Point at Chaddesley Corbett on 8th February 2020 where he was first past the post. The new result will be:
1. Kinondu Kweto (Owned by Mr and Mrs C Poste, trained by Francesca Nimmo and ridden by James King)
2. Trooper Jones (Owned by Mr P A Jones, trained by Phil Rowley and ridden by Alex Edwards)
3. The Feckenham Fox (Owned by Mr K E Hay, trained by Max Young and ridden by Huw Edwards)
The Judicial Panel Chairman (JPC), His Honour Brian Barker CBE QC, has approved the following penalties under the British Horseracing Authority fast-track system:
£175 fine - breach of Regulation 45 of Regulations for Point-to-Point Steeple Chases Season 2019-2020 in that following GLORY AND HONOUR (IRE) run in The Open Maiden for 4,5 and 6 year olds at Chaddesley Corbett on 8 February 2020, the horse was selected for post-race sampling. On 2 March 2020 it was reported that the post-race urine sample taken from GLORY AND HONOUR (IRE) had returned an adverse analytical finding for Omeprazole.
On investigation it was established that GLORY AND HONOUR (IRE) had been administrated GastroGard, which contains Omeprazole, as the horse had gone off its feed and had a dull coat around two weeks before the race. During the interview Ms Ingman explained that she were uncertain as to when exactly the first administration of GastroGard took place beyond stating that it would have been a couple of weeks before the race at Chaddesley Corbett. She went on to state that she did not have a withdrawal period in mind when administrating the substance.
As the sample provided by GLORY AND HONOUR (IRE) showed the presence of a Prohibited Substance, the horse will be disqualified from the race at Chaddesley Corbett under Regulation 150.
The fine will be deferred for a period of six months.
