Australian Trainer Blames Caffeine Positive On Coffee Spill – Horse Racing News

Australian trainer Nick Smart has blamed a coffee spill for one of his horses testing positive for caffeine, reports

Smart trainee Mr Coyne was found to have the prohibited substance in his system after running second in the Ecycle Solutions BM120 Steeplechase at Ballarat on Aug. 23 last year.

“It was a real mystery to us. When we looked into it, and it sounds silly, but our coffee set-up is right near the feed room,” Smart said. “It was right at the feed door with the coffee and everyone used to make their coffee every day. So I put it down to someone has spilt something in a bucket and it went like that.”

The Victoria Racing Tribunal has not yet set a date for Smart’s case.
