Tchaikovsky Tests Positive

Gr3 New Turf Carriers Merchants

The National Horseracing Authority confirms a prohibited substance finding which is aligned with its decision to publish the status of all Prohibited Substance matters from the commencement of the new Racing Season.

The presence of Meloxicam (Class 4) was disclosed upon analysis of a specimen taken from Tchaikovsky prior to the running of Race 4, New Turf Carriers Merchants (Gr3), at Turffontein Racecourse on 25 November.

The Trainer responsible, Mr T Zackey, elected to sign an Admission of Guilt and was fined an amount of R35 000.

Tchaikovsky is accordingly disqualified from the race in terms of Rule 72.3.2.

This finding will be recorded in the NHA Racing Calendar.
