BLEWBURY trainer Eve Johnson Houghton is the latest trainer to come forward and reveal one of her horses has tested positive for morphine.
The Oxfordshire handler has confirmed the three-year-old gelding Charlie Wells failed a drugs test after winning the 32Red Classified Stakes at Chepstow on June 23, after which he has been placed in two other races.
She is mystified as to where the contaminated food was contained and has had all of her string tested as a precaution.
“I had all my horses tested, but they haven’t come up with the results yet,” said Johnson Houghton.
“I don’t know which bit of feed it’s in, but hopefully we’ll get to the bottom of it, and hopefully it’s a one-off.”
Johnson Houghton admitted to using some products provided by animal feed manufacturer, Dodson & Horrell.
Earlier, the company announced they were holding a full investigation into how possible component contamination could have occurred after Estimate, owned by The Queen, also tested positive for morphine.
