King fined PS2,000 after Yanworth drug case.

By Jon Lees ALAN KING was yesterday fined PS2,000 after beaten Champion Hurdle favourite Yanworth failed a post-race drug test.

The JP McManus-owned hurdler returned a positive test for Triamcinolone acetonide, an anti-inflammatory, after finishing seventh in the Cheltenham Festival feature for which he was sent off 2-1 favourite.

although Triamcinolone acetonide can be administered to horses in training, it is not allowed to be present in their system on raceday.

The BHA disciplinary committee of chairman Tim Charlton QC, Dr lyn Griffiths and Simon Rowlands, who were both hearing their first cases since being among a draft of 23 new appointments to the disciplinary panel in the wake of the BHA's integrity shake-up, has yet to publish its full findings.
