HRV swab compliance rate highest in state

The Racing Integrity Commissioner recently released his findings regarding an audit conducted on swabbing processes and systems of the three Victorian racing codes in 2015-16, which found HRV to have the highest compliance rate.

The audit found HRV to have a compliance rate of 99.64 per cent.

The audit analysed the documentation and records for the entire swabbing process, from the issuance of a testing kit until the final clearance of such sample by the laboratory.


“Importantly from the Board’s perspective, these findings certainly put to bed the rumours and innuendo which have previously circulated with respect to HRV’s swabbing procedures and the testing thereof,” HRV Chairman Dale Monteith said.

“The Board is also determined to significantly lift the number of swabs taken," Mr Monteith added.
