A Melbourne vet has denied supplying a product containing cobalt to Sam Kavanagh or any other trainer.

Dr Tom Brennan, co-owner of the Flemington Equine Clinic, is being grilled by Racing NSW Stewards at an inquiry on Tuesday into elevated levels of cobalt chloride found in the Kavanagh-trained Midsummer Sun.

Brennan has refuted earlier evidence from one of his employees she sent two bottles labelled “Vitamin Complex” by express post to Kavanagh at Rosehill.

Analysis of the two bottles found at Kavanagh’s stable found they contained a high concentration of cobalt which is illegal in high doses.

Samantha Potter, a nutrition consultant with the Flemington Equine Clinic, also gave evidence she had seen Brennan draw up a drip with the contents of a similar bottle and give it to horses at Danny O’Brien’s Flemington stable in September or October last year.

O’Brien, Kavanagh’s father Mark, Peter Moody and Lee and Shannon Hope are Victorian trainers under investigation by Racing Victoria stewards for elevated cobalt levels found in horses from their stables.

Notebooks which were supposed to contain records of all express post transactions were missing from the Flemington Equine Clinic and data was missing from Brennan’s mobile phone.
