North Queensland trainer Greg Strickland has been banned for administering medication to three horses at Innisfail in 2018.
Strickland faced seven charges on administering medication on race day without permission after Cashed Up Bully, Redwinska and Oakfield Avenger were scratched once the trainer’s activities at the course’s stables on October 30, 2018 prompted an investigation.
Strickland pleaded guilty and was effectively disqualified for two years after being stood down in October 2018. The disqualification expires on October 26.
Stewards settled on a two-year disqualification after taking into account Strickland’s forthright evidence, personal circumstances and his previously unblemished record over a long period of time.
