Racing: Dope saga to end

Click to follow
THE Jockey Club's investigation into the Doncaster dopings is expected to conclude today. A Disciplinary Committee inquiry, which opened in December 1991, will resume examining the cases of Norwich and Bravefoot, who were defeated at Doncaster, and Flying Diva at Yarmouth in September 1990. Each horse had a tranquiliser, acetylpromazine, in its system, but police and Jockey Club investigations have been exhausted. Today's hearing will consider the liability of the trainers concerned, Dick Hern and Barry Hills. Rule 53 puts the responsibility on trainers when horses fail dope tests.
