TRSA Statement: Eastender
During a routine stable inspection this morning as part of their role in protecting the integrity of racing in South Australia, Thoroughbred Racing SA Stewards became concerned with regard to race day treatment practices involving the Tasmanian horse Eastender ahead of today’s Adelaide Cup.
Following an interview with the trainer of the horse, Mr Barry Campbell, Stewards declared the horse a late scratching at 1055 under the provisions of Australian Rule of Racing 254.
Stewards will conduct an inquiry into this incident at a time to be fixed.
No further comment will be made at this time.
