Leading Mt Gambier greyhound trainer Tracie Price is set to face a GRSA stewards inquiry after one of his greyhounds tested positive to Cobalt above the prescribed level.

Price, who trained the first four winners on last Sunday’s Mt Gambier greyhounds race card; was notified recently that “the urine sample taken from the greyhound Cilla brown had shown the presence of Cobalt at the Greyhound Racing South Australia race meeting held at Mt Gambier on Sunday 19th August 2018.”

“The reserve portion of the urine sample was tested and the presence of Cobalt was confirmed in excess of the threshold of 100ng/mL, according to GAR 83(10).”

Price is now required to be available for a Stewards inquiry, together with any witnesses that may assist, into the circumstances relating to the obtaining of the positive urine sample.

The date of the hearing is yet to be revealed.

The race in question saw Cilla Brown win a 5th Grade final at Mt Gambier netting $1,080 in prize money as a $10.00 outsider in betting. Cilla Brown is yet to win again in four subsequent starts.
