Racing Queensland stewards will reconvene an inquiry next week to determine a penalty for Caloundra trainer Darryl Hansen after he was found guilty at an inquiry into a swab irregularity returned by Mackay Cup winner Hussonator.

Hussonator returned a pre-race sample positive to an elevated level of TCO2 (bicarb) prior to the mare’s win in the Mackay Cup (1800m) on July 9.

Racing Queensland chief steward Wade Birch said Hussonator’s TCO2 sample was above the normal threshold and Hansen was subsequently found guilty of presenting the mare at a race meeting with a high bicarb reading when stewards opened an inquiry on Thursday.

Hansen pleaded not guilty and the inquiry was adjourned until Monday to allow him time to make submissions in relation to any penalty.

Hussonator was disqualified from the Mackay Cup, making Shooting Scene the winner of the north Queensland feature with Old Mates Act second and Captain Biggles third.

Hansen is also due to front another inquiry next Thursday after his star sprinter Essington returned a positive swab following his win in the Newmarket Handicap at Rockhampton on June 23.
