Fance Galop announced during the medical inquiry of jockey Frankie Dettori that the substance that Dettori tested postivie for at Lonchamp on 16 September will stay unknown and that information will never be devulged. Three doctors were on hand for the medical inquiry on Tuesday and it was those doctors that determined the level of banned sustance was found in Dettori’s system when the sample was taken after the day of racing on 16 September. Dettori declined to be at the inquiry but was represented by Christopher Stewart-Moore, who listened in by conference call.
The medical inquiry will now submit their findings to France Galop who will then in turn make a ruling on any penalties that Dettori will recieve. The France Galop stewards will meet in two weeks to look over the medical information and then come down with their ruling. ‘The medical committee will give their decision to the jockey and as long as he has not recieved it, France Galop will not communicate anything’ stated the director of press relations for France Galop in Julien Pescatore. Pescatore added that if the medical committee wants France Galop to make any communications it can but it is entirely up to them. France Galop also stated that they did not target Dettori on the day that he was tested and that they always test 10 to 15 jockeys at random when tests are conducted.
The rumour has always been that the Frankie Dettori tested positive for cocaine but that will not be revealed unless the medical committee decides to reveal that information.
