NHA Inquiry – Trainer Paul Peter

The National Horseracing Authority confirms that at an Inquiry held in Johannesburg on 25 May 2012, Trainer Paul Peter was charged with a contravention of Rule 73.2.4 in that he was the Trainer and the person responsible for the horse NUT FLUSH, who ran in and won the 2nd race at the Vaal Racecourse on 15 March 2012, after which a urine specimen taken from this horse disclosed upon analysis the presence of Ambroxol which is a prohibited substance in terms of the Rules of The National Horseracing Authority.


Mr Peter pleaded not guilty but was found guilty of the charge.  The Inquiry Board imposed a fine of R60 000,00 of which R20 000 is wholly suspended for a period of two years on condition that Mr Peter is not found guilty of contravening Rule 73.2.4 during that period.


Mr Peter has the right of appeal against the finding and the penalty imposed.


Furthermore, in terms of Rule 72.3.2 NUT FLUSH is disqualified from this race and the stake monies are to be returned for re-distribution in terms of Rule 67.7.8.
