Stewards open inquiry into Lafferty Hurdle runner

WARRNAMBOOL trainer Symon Wilde  yesterday declined to comment on a stewards’ inquiry opened after the running of the  Kevin Lafferty Hurdle at Warrnambool last Sunday.

The inquiry relates to the Wilde-trained mare Finley Harper, which was found by a veterinary surgeon to have blood in the vicinity of its near side jugular before the running of the 3470-metre race.

Stewards took evidence from Symon and training partner Bill Wilde, while treatment logs were also tendered.

Pre and post-race blood samples were taken from the five-year-old mare, as well as post-race urine samples.

Wilde said he would comment once more information was forwarded from the stewards.
