The confusion for the racing public and stakeholders after Saturday’s unprecedented suspension of trainer Tony Peter and the scratching of his horses on the Highveld’s premier raceday, continues with the National Horseracing Authority’s latest media release.
So the matter is not closed?
The National Horseracing Authority now advise that following the press release that was distributed on Sunday night, 26 November 2023, “URGENT UPDATE ON THE STATUS OF INTERIM SUSPENSION – TRAINER TONY PETER”, and the conclusion of the investigation, the following will be considered, inter alia, by an Inquiry Board.
Trainer Tony Peter was advised on 25 November 2023 to present selected runners for the taking of pre-race specimens.
Flying Bull was not presented for the collection of specimens, despite Trainer Tony Peter being reminded of this requirement.
An Inquiry Board will be convened in due course.
