2. Equine Anti-Doping Rule Violations


2.6 Possession of a Prohibited Substance or a Prohibited Method.

No Person shall possess any Prohibited Substance or Prohibited Method unless he can demonstrate acceptable justification for the Possession.

2.6.1 Possession shall mean Possession on a racecourse of any Prohibited Substance or Prohibited Method prohibited on Raceday only.

No Person apart from a Veterinary Officer or racecourse Veterinary Surgeon shall bring onto premises owned, used or controlled by the Racecourse Managing Executive at any time any Prohibited Substance that is prohibited on Raceday only, or any means of administering such substance, unless dispensation is granted by a Veterinary Officer. Premises owned, used or controlled by the Racecourse Managing Executive for this purpose do not include vehicles on such premises under the control of the Responsible Person or his Support Personnel.

2.6.2 Possession shall mean Possession at any time of any Prohibited Substance or Prohibited Method which is prohibited at all times.

The only acceptable justification would be a veterinarian being in Possession of Prohibited Substances or Prohibited Methods for the treatment of animals which are not subject to these Equine Anti-Doping Rules or a Responsible Person or member of his Support Personnel being in Possession of a Prohibited Substance or Prohibited Method for his own personal Use on justifiable medical grounds.
