Date set for EPO case against Lamings

The EPO case against training partners Bevan Laming and his son Richard will be heard in early October.

A directions hearing was held on Monday and the Racing Appeals and Disciplinary Board will hear the case on October 4.
The Lamings were charged in November as a result of an investigation into Benelli and War Dancer testing positive to EPO.

Both horses tested positive to the prohibited substance darbepoetin alfa which is a synthetic form of erythropoietin (EPO).

Racing Analytical Services Limited detected EPO during the screening of out-of-competition blood samples taken from Benelli on June 11 and July 2 and War Dancer on June 11.
