COMMUNIQUE

 

Further to the Communique issued on 5 March 2019 with respect to Wolf Of Wallstreet, on the 8 March 2019, the Racing Stewards, in collaboration with the GRA, ordered that urine and blood
samples be taken from all horses of S. Jones stables at Centre Guy Desmarais, Floréal.

On the 13 March 2019, QuantiLAB reported that illicit substances were detected in the urine and blood samples taken from the following horses of S. Jones Stables: Bono, Burwaaz, Alaadel and
Mackbool.

In view of the inquiry that has already been initiated, no further disclosure of information would be appropriate at this stage.

Trainer Mr. S. Jones was notified of the findings. The latter has advised the MTC that he will consider whether he will exercise his right under MTC Rule 200 (2) (b) and have the “B” samples analysed and will advise the Racing Stewards accordingly on Thursday 14 March.

A further Communique will be issued in due course.
