In the aftermath of the our initial advice that Dyna Forta has swabbed positive from his winning SA Derby run, Bate has officially called to inquiry by GRSA Stewards.
Bate was initially notified of the positive swab to Procaine on 30th October 2009 after all three placegetters from the 2009 SA Derby were routinely swabbed.
The reserve "b" sample was subsequently in Victoria and has confirmed the presence of Procaine. The test occurred only yesterday on the 18th November 2009.
Bate was advised of the analysts results on 19th November 2009 and is required to attend an inquiry at the offices of Greyhound Racing South Australia Limited, 55 Cardigan Street, Angle Park on Monday 7th December 2009 at 11.00am, together with any witnesses that may assist for an inquiry by the Stewards into the circumstances relating to the obtaining of the positive urine sample.
