Stewards' Report - Kane Harris

Racing Victoria (RV) Stewards have received a report from Racing Analytical Services Limited (RASL) confirming that a prohibited substance has been detected in a blood sample collected from the Kane Harris trained racehorse, Kamo.

The report relates to a pre-race blood sample taken from Kamo prior to the gelding competing in the Asset Painting Services handicap over 2050 metres at Mornington racecourse on 11 May 2021.

RASL reported that the blood sample was shown to contain Flunixin (a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug), which is a prohibited substance when detected in a sample taken on race day in accordance with the Australian Rules of Racing.

The Australian Racing Forensic Laboratory (ARFL) also reported that it had detected Flunixin within the reserve portion of the blood sample. 

RV Stewards initially informed Mr Harris of the irregularity on 23 June 2021 and today advised him of the confirmatory findings and that the Stewards are continuing with their investigation.
