Michelle Payne has been fined by stewards for negligence

Michelle Payne has been fined $1,000 for negligence after a raceday bag containing medications was found in her float at Geelong last month.

Payne faces stewards after a bag in one of her floats was found containing therapeutic products (Phenylbutazone, Acepromazine and Swelldown) as well as sealed syringes.

The stewards fined the Melbourne Cup winning jockey now turned trainer $1,000 but cleared her of any intentional wrongdoing with the contents of the bag containing essential products used to treat horses for welfare purposes outside of racedays.

“In assessing penalty, Stewards took into account her guilty plea, her record, and her forthright evidence throughout the investigation; and also considered that whilst the products were of a therapeutic nature, bringing them and the syringes to the racecourse or in a motor vehicle used for the purpose of transporting a horse to a race meeting, without the Stewards written permission, was nonetheless a contravention of AR251.

“The Stewards were satisfied on the evidence available to them, including a cleared post-race blood sample from Jukila, that none of the mentioned substances were administered to Jukila in contravention of the Rules.”
