HICKMAN FINED OVER POSITIVE SWAB

HICKMAN FINED OVER POSITIVE SWAB

Trainer Greg Hickman has been fined $5000 after Braces returned a positive swab to the prohibited anti-inflammatory meloxicam following his run at Rosehill on February 27.

While stewards could not determine the cause of the low-level of meloxicam,

Hickman pleaded guilty to presenting the horse to race with it in his system.

Stewards took into account it was Hickman’s first offence under the rule and fined the trainer $5,000 and disqualified Braces from the race.
