Two Victorian vets are scheduled to give evidence at the inquiry into elevated cobalt levels found in a horse trained in Sydney by Sam Kavanagh.
Dr Stuart Vallance from the Flemington Equine Clinic declined to speak to Racing NSW stewards on the opening day of the inquiry last week but indicated he would do so when the hearing resumes on Thursday.
Dr Adam Matthews, a former vet at the clinic, is also set to give evidence.
Dr Tom Brennan, one of the principals of Flemington Equine, has been charged by Racing Victoria stewards in relation to high cobalt levels found in horses trained by Mark Kavanagh and Danny O’Brien in Melbourne.
Sam Kavanagh has told stewards he paid $1000 each for two bottles labelled Vitamin Complex which have been analysed and found to contain a high level of cobalt chloride.
Kavanagh has been stood down from training after the illegal level of cobalt found in a swab taken from Mid Summer Sun after he won the Gosford Cup in January.
