  • NOTICE Regarding Feeds/Products

    Posted by Stewards Department

    Trainers and racing participants should take note of the “Notices” provided by Racing New South Wales (RNSW) and Racing Victoria (RV) on Tuesday, 19 September and Monday, 18 September respectively. 

    The notice by RNSW related to the use of some commercially available feeds that have been found to contain levels of Cobalt above that specified on the labels. In particular, they referred to feed samples taken from Barastoc Phar Lap Oats‐Free Muesli Concentrated Feed manufactured on 23/3/17 and 22/5/17, and also to the use by some trainers of custom‐made feeds, feed additives, and/or supplements, and the possibility that some manufacturers are not listing all active constituents; and/or the concentration of all active constituents on the labels, packaging or elsewhere of their custom‐made products. The notice by RV made reference to custom‐made feeds in terms identical to that referred to by RNSW. 

    Both RNSW and RV also reminded trainers “of their obligations to know what they are feeding, and/or administering to, their horses, including the concentrations of active constituents of any products used by them”. 

    In addition, both RNSW and RV also provided the following “In the event that trainers are not aware of the active constituents of their horses’ feeds, feed additives and/or supplements (and the concentrations of such constituents), they should:

    1. exercise caution in feeding such products to their horses; and
    2. take immediate steps to ascertain the active constituents of their horses’ feeds, feed additives and/or supplements (and the concentrations of such constituents)”. 

    Thoroughbred Racing SA Limited urges trainers to exercise caution in the selection of their feeds/products used in their stables and to make the necessary enquiries of manufacturers and/or suppliers in respect of the composition of the feeds/products they supply.
