Original Blog Post:

Have just heard that the Victorian derby winner Plastered has returned a postive swab from its last race at Belmont before coming to Melbourne!
A second swab is to be tested tomorrow

This could be part of the reason Smith showed very little emotion after winning the derby.

Very disturbing Mr Smith giving all WA racing fans hope that we had found a new champion to support after the retirement of Northerly. I hope it was a mistake but I doubt it!

On another note boom pacer Lively Medley is also out of action due to a twisted bowel! It is feared that this will be the end of the pacers career. In 16 Australian starts Lively Medley won 15.

I'm pleased Savabeel ran second in the Victoria Derby. Elvstroem aside, it is a kiss of death race to win.

In fact, looking at historical precedent, from both a racing and breeding perspective, I would rather he didn't win the AJC Derby either.

Both of Plastered's Melbourne samples have been cleared.

On that: David Fowler, it was contaminated feed that caused the problem so your insinuations are ridiculous. Get your facts straight before making accusations next time!

Oh well, Savabeel's connections will now have to hope for a mystery virus taking out all the AJC Derby contenders.

David Fowler. It was contaminated feed that caused the problem so your insinuation is ridiculous and makes you yourself look "very disappointing". Get some facts before you start next time.

dicksy,
You are dead right mate, seems people are quick to hang a fellow before he is found guilty, I wonder how tolerant they are with their own weaknesses.
Hey pilgrim, get down off your hoss!!

Does anyone know what the 'prohibited substance' was? Reports are mixed with one version saying it was a positive swab and others saying just a swab irregularity.

i beleive in innocent until proven guilty but contaminated feed could be an easy way to keep someones reputation and trainer license also!
Im sure the stewards cant fine the feed supplier so if you were a trainer and could pay a feed supplier some cash to make such a situation easier on one!?!?

Im not implying that has happened here but im sure more corrup things have occured in racing than that possible scenario! Not knowing lindsay smith how can anyone here judge his integrity? We can't really imo.

The AAMI Vase swab was found to be clear but apparently they are retesting it. As Comrade mentioned it would seem that the swab irregularity comes from a sample taken after a Perth race and is due to a batch of contaminated feed. If the Vase sample was clear, and it was only the WA feed, then it would seem logical to assume that the Derby sample will be clear as well (unless they carted the feed over with the horse!).

However, going on the luck the connections of Savabeel have had so far, anything is possible!

I thought it was the trainers responsibility to bring the horse to the races DRUG FREE.
Doesn't matter where it comes from, think it's a zer tolerance policy these days.
As for the Derby, they are reporting that those swabs have yet to be cleared...

Be carefull not to hang Lindsy Smith before all the circumstances are revieled!
I am 100% sure the trainer will be cleared,however under the rules of racing he has presented his horse for the races with a prohibited substance.
The swab for the derby should be clear as the contaminated feed may not have got sent east with the horse.
People should'nt judge before all the facts are presented.
