Greyhound found to have been doped with cocaine

On 22 Mar 2013 a greyhound trainer Mr Leo Vanderburg was disqualified for 9 months and fined $3000 after a swab taken from the greyhound "Mrs Chitty Bang" was found to contain the prohibited substances amphetamine and benzoylecgonine, a metabolite of cocaine. Miss Chitty Bang had won a race at Bathurst on 17 Dec 2012. Mr Vanderburg pleaded guilty and his penalty was ameliorated because of this and because he had no other source of income as a professional trainer.
