Wasnít  the MM was the race where AB was stuck in a traffic jam for hours and races delayed for a hour?

Not implying anything but would any vet or any staff give a wrong medication or drink by mistake if the horse was agitated during the trip etc. If so would it be viewed as performance enhancing if given to calm a horse? I am just clutching at straws for the connection.

It could.

But you would expect corroboration from the vet.

In fact (I think) if a vet administers any substance to a racehorse there are protocols to be followed, records to be updated.

If you just say "OK" to any uncorroborated reason then you would open a whole Pandora's Box in regard to anyone charged in the future.

There is a precedent to a horse being allowed to keep a race after an abnormal sample.

Think it was one of Clarry Connor's Slipper winners. Tierce in 1991 perhaps? Lignocaine for a tooth?

I think you maybe right in regards to Tierce. He was a good horse. On a side note, have a look at some of the jockey names that rode in the Slipper that year. Not bad depth at all. A bit surprised not to see John Marshall in the names but I donít think he got many rides out of the Cummings stables at times.

Below is an article about some horses that tested positive and had group 1 races stripped from them.
