HRSA Stewards have been informed that preliminary testing of the pre-race blood sample taken from MUSCLETONIAN prior to this race has reported a level of TCO2 in plasma greater than 35.00ml/L (not adjusted).  As the level reported exceeds the limit prescribed by the HRSA Elevated TCO2 Policy, Trainer F Pullicino has been informed that in accord with the Policy MUSCLETONIAN would be required to be presented four hours prior to the scheduled start time for each of its next four starts.

Stewards noted that the level reported also exceeded the level reported from a sample taken recently during an unannounced stable visit.

GENERAL -

Licenced Trainer Wayne Gowley was advised that Stewards would expect him to in future conduct himself in an appropriate manner when issued a directive from an Official.

Several drivers were advised that they would need to further modify their whip use to ensure that they fully comply with the current whip rules.
