Australian Group Two Winner Tests Positive For Crystal Meth

Australian Racing

Leading Australian trainer John O'Shea has been charged by the Queensland Racing Integrity Commission after one of his winning horses tested positive for the banned recreational drug of crystal meth.

Pretty In Pink, fresh after landing the Group Two Moreton Cup at Doomben in June last year was swabbed and it was revealed that the horse had tested positive for the substance.

QRIC commissioner Ross Barnett confirmed Pretty In Pink's positive for methamphetamine and amphetamine in a statement on Thursday.

This is not the first time that an Australian horse has tested positive for a banned substance as in 2005, Gai Waterhouse was fined A$15,000 (£8,250/€9,200) by Racing New South Wales stewards after her horse, Love You Honey, tested positive for cocaine.
