The Racing Integrity Unit (RIU) has charged Mr Alan Lynch, Licensed Trainer Pukekohe with three drug administration offences relating to the horse This Sky Rox. 

The races concerned were at Alexandra Park on 12 June (3rd placing), 19 June (first placing) and 10 July 2015 (6th placing). 

Mr Andrew Grant, Licensed Trainer Pukekohe has also been charged with one drug administration offence relating to the horse Majestic One when it won at Alexandra Park on 3 July 2015. 

In the case of both trainers the positive drug test was for Aminorex, which is a prohibited substance due to the effect it has on the nervous system and its action as a stimulant. 

As the matter is now before the Judicial Control Authority the RIU will make no further comment.
