Champion trainer Chris Waller might have to front stewards after an unnamed horse in his stable has reportedly tested positive to methamphetamine.

Stewards have not made comments on any investigations but Waller said the stable is “working through the possibility of a positive sample to ice.”

“It is an issue we want to get on the front foot with and we have tested our staff to try and find how this happened,” Waller told Fairfax.

The horse in question is reportedly a maiden and raced at Randwick on Melbourne Cup day.

Racing NSW stewards would not comment because the results of tests on the second, or B sample, from the unnamed horse have not been returned.

However, Waller said he was looking into his own stable to try to find out if it was the source of contamination regarding the illicit drug which has the street name ice.

Recent cases involving Victorian trainer Matt Laurie and Scone trainer Luke Griffiths were determined to have come from human-to-horse contact while a case involving John McNair was suspected of being a deliberate act by someone outside the stable.

“We are already vigilant about checking staff and maybe we we need to step it up even further,” Waller said.

“We have tested a lot of staff and it’s thrown up nothing.

“But it could have come from anyone who has had contact with the horse, even at the races.

“We want to work out how this has happened.”
