Famiglietti Called To Inquiry Over Steroid Positive

On Wednesday 5th June 2013 Stewards informed Mr. Michele Famiglietti through his legal representative that the greyhound Mr. Leonardo had shown the presence of 6α−Hydroxystanozolol from the urine sample taken at the Greyhound racing SA meeting held at Angle Park on Wednesday 1st May 2013 and that he would be advised of the date, time and place of an inquiry.

The reserve portion of the urine sample was tested and the presence of 6α−Hydroxystanozolol was confirmed.

6α−Hydroxystanozolol is a metabolite of the anabolic steroid Stanozol.

Mr Famiglietti through his legal representative was advised of the analysts results on Wednesday 10th July 2013 and is required to attend an inquiry at the offices of Greyhound Racing South Australia Limited, 55 Cardigan Street, Angle Park on Wednesday 31st July 2013 at 11.00am, together with any witnesses that may assist for an inquiry by the Stewards into the circumstances relating to the obtaining of the positive urine sample.

Famiglietti is already serving a 24 month disqualification over an amphetamine positive swab stemming from 2012. This new positive swab originates from the period during the inquiry and appeals process when Famiglietti was allowed to continue training.
