21 Mar 2017 | ThoroughbredNEWS News Desk 
Veterinarian Dr David Garth has withdrawn his appeal to the Racing NSW Appeal Panel over his fine of $15,000 after he pleaded guilty to a charge under AR175(h)(ii) that he administered the prohibited substance ketorolac to Yankee Rose.

The positive sample was detected in a post-race urine sample taken from Yankee Rose following the filly running and being placed second in the Group 1 Flight Stakes (1600m) at Randwick on 1 October 2016.

This Appeal was set down for hearing on Friday at the offices of Racing NSW, however on Monday Dr Garth sought leave to withdraw the appeal, which was not opposed by the Racing NSW Stewards.

The appeal by trainer David Vandyke against the severity of penalties imposed on him by the Racing NSW Stewards acting under AR175(h)(ii) & AR178, being a total penalty of $25,000, will be heard on Friday.

Vandyke had pleaded guilty to charges under AR175(h)(ii) & AR178 that, as the trainer of Yankee Rose, he did cause to be administered the prohibited substance ketorolac to Yankee Rose, that he engaged veterinarian Dr David Garth to administer the prohibited substance ketorolac and that he brought Yankee Rose to Randwick racecourse on 1 October 2016 for the purpose of engaging in the Group 1 Flight Stakes.
