LOCAL greyhound trainer Linda Britton has been disqualified for 18 months and fined $500 after one of her greyhounds tested positive to a prohibited substance.


Britton pleaded guilty last Thursday to all four charges issued on December 17 with the Racing and Wagering Western Australia stewards handing down their penalty on Monday.

The first two charges related to the Britton-trained greyhound Zelemar Fever testing positive to a prohibited substances.

The stewards’ inquiry stated Britton, as the trainer, nominated and presented Zelemar Fever to compete in race five at Greyhounds Western Australia Cannington on August 16, 2014 and in race eight at the same venue on August 23,2014 not free of the prohibited substance testosterone.

A concentration greater than 10 nanograms per millilitre of the prohibited substance was found in a urine sample taken from the greyhound following the races where she placed first and third.

Each offence received a nine-month disqualification to be served cumulatively.

Consequently, Zelemar Fever has been disqualified from the races in question with the placings to be amended.

The third and fourth charges related to Britton failing to keep treatment records.

Britton was fined $200 for failing to keep treatment records detailing the administration of ethyloestrenol tablets to greyhound bitches trained by her.

Britton was also fined $300 after she was found to be in the possession of approximately 1500 ethyloestrenol tablets in two unlabeled containers located by stewards on October 10, 2014 in the fridge within her residence at her training premises which were not prescribed in compliance with the relevant provisions.

The stewards took into account Britton’s prior record which included a six-month ban in 1984 in relation to Pholcodiene and a $750 fine in 1999 in relation to antibiotics.
