Queensland trainer Ben Currie is a step closer to clearing his name after initial tests taken from horses he trained on Weetwood Day returned a negative result.

Queensland Racing Integrity Commission (QRIC) have been investigating the trainer after integrity officers spotted what they determined were suspicious activities at Ben Currie’s stables on April 7.

QRIC Commissioner Ross Barnett told The Courier Mail that initial results taken from the Currie-trained horses had returned negative results.

“To date no prohibited substances have been detected but testing is ongoing,” Barnett told The Courier Mail.

“Treatment on race day with any form of medication is unlawful and this can include products which may be permitted on non-race days.”

Mark Currie, the father of Ben, has been charged with 12 counts of race day treatment to which he has previously pleaded not guilty to all charges. Two other members from Currie’s staff has also been stood down in relation to race day treatment of horses.

Stewards allege race day treatment of race horses occurred on two separate occasions on the morning of Saturday April 7 and Saturday March 24.

Ben Currie took to social media to vent his frustration at Stewards

“Handy to find out about this through the paper,” Currie tweeted.

“No press release @QRICStewards or maybe even a call to let me know- what I always said. Hopefully the right outcome can now be found and apologies given.”

Mark Currie and the two stablehands’ matters will be determined when the inquiry continues on Friday.
