Unbeaten racehorse End Assembly tests positive to cocaine

Unbeaten racehorse tests positive to cocaine putting its recent $200,000 prize in jeopardy

An unbeaten racehorse may be stripped of its win of a $200,000 prize after testing positive to cocaine. 

In a statement, the Queensland Racing Integrity Commission revealed it has launched an investigation into End Assembly, after it tested positive to the illicit substance. 

Its trainer, Mark Currie, will be required to front a stewards’ inquiry next week.  

End Assembly has been described by media outlets as ‘cocaine horse’ 

In a statement, a Queensland Racing Integrity commission spokesman said: ‘A Toowoomba-trained racehorse has tested positive to cocaine, following its win in a $200,000 feature race at Eagle Farm in December last year. 

‘The results of the post-race urine sample conducted by QRIC’s Racing Science Centre and Victoria’s Racing Analytical Services have returned positive to the banned illicit drug. 

‘QRIC stewards will hold an inquiry with the horse’s trainer early next week.’
