Advisory notice to ALL TRAINERS - issued jointly by Harness Racing New Zealand (HRNZ), New Zealand Thoroughbred Racing (NZTR) and the Racing Integrity Unit (RIU) regarding the use of the product SYNCROFEN. 

The RIU has today advised HRNZ and NZTR of significant concerns relating to this product and some of the claims made regarding its safety. 

The product advertising states that the product is “The Natural and Safe Alternative”. 

The RIU has firm ground to believe that the product is not “safe” as is claimed, but instead contains substances which could give rise to a positive drug test result. 

The RIU has become aware of SYNCROFEN being marketed on line and sold through feed merchants.  

We strongly advise caution when dealing with this product. 

Should you have any questions regarding the above then please contact either;
