Would be nice to check the code of conduct rules for the NHA .
I just notice too many fines being issued for transgressions.
This particular horse was punted from about 40/1 into around 8/1 last year on July day .Off the board.
Needless to say I followed the money and burnt my money too.
..... Very disappointed if Pete did in fact cheat then he must give to the NHRA Xmas bonus fund.... and suffer the consequences of his actions..... was always told that it was easier to tune up fillies and mares and those that did it coyly smiling nudge nudge wink wink meaning that this cocktail is what they were referring to.... Trainer of Black Caviar admitted that she was on a similar product all her career.... and then one has got to wonder if all those fem world beating machines from down under were all tuned similarly...
The mickey is normally to prevent a horse from performing.., the sh1t here is administered over a period of time....and is steroidal in action in orderl to shape cut and tone muscles just like some female body builders have been known to do..... it is nothing but an illegal shortcut.... .
...but because the substance is steroidal the body build has been shaped illegally and a lengthy ban will ensure thst the horse will become totally let down and stripped of the condition she was illegally conditioned into.., same thing with that other local trainer that got the R650K fine and a smart sort banned for the steroids used..

Must be the worst planned betting coup in history. U dead heat with ur 50/1 stable mate..
... doubt that they were setting her up for a single hit... but shaping her to be a multiple winner and have a bigger value at stud.... Now they have a maiden winner that will never see a racecourse again... and may be infertile at stud because the steroids may have totally messed with her reproductive system...what a shame
The National Horseracing Authority confirms that an Inquiry was held at its offices in Johannesburg on Monday, 13 November 2023. Both Trainer Mr P B Mr Muscutt and the NHA were legally represented at the Inquiry.
Mr Muscutt was charged with the following contraventions of the Rules of the NHA:
Rule 73.2.4 (charge one)
The particulars of charge one in relation to a contravention of Rule 73.2.4, was that Mr Muscutt, who was the trainer of BEVIES DELIGHT which participated in Race 7 at Hollywoodbets Greyville Racecourse on 17 September 2023 after which a specimen was taken from this horse after the race, and found upon analysis, to contain a forbidden substance, namely the steroid, Trendione. Mr Muscutt initially entered a plea of not guilty to this charge, but subsequently pleaded guilty.
Rule 10.5.14 (charge two)
The particulars of charge two in relation to a contravention of Rule 10.5.14 was that as the Trainer of BEVIES DELIGHT, Mr Muscutt failed to record (or cause to be recorded) a veterinary treatment on 23 August 2023 in his Veterinary Treatment Register. Trainer Muscutt entered a plea of guilty to this charge.
Charge one finding:
The Inquiry Board found Mr Muscutt guilty and imposed a penalty of a fine of R115 000 (one hundred and fifteen thousand rand).
Charge two finding:
The Inquiry Board found Mr Muscutt guilty, and a penalty of a warning was imposed.
BEVIES DELIGHT has been banned from racing for 365 days under Rule 74.3, which is effective from 13 October 2023, the date when Mr Muscutt was advised of the Laboratory finding.
Furthermore, in terms of Rule 72.3.2, BEVIES DELIGHT is disqualified from Race 7 at Hollywoodbets Greyville Racecourse on 17 September 2023 and the provisions of Rule 67.7.8 shall apply.
... This saga is becoming more confusing than a chameleon of on a smarty box.... Pete admits guilt but the part owner a legal eagle says Pete did not cheat as the steroids that were present in the urine sample was because of contamination of the Regu-mate.... and inadvertently Pete is guilty... so does this mean that Pete knew that the Regu-mate was contaminated....
