greyhound illegally doped with caffeine

On 8 Oct 2012 a greyhound trainer Mr Raymond Lee was disqualified for a period of three years when a greyhound he trained, "Spritely Vixen", won a race at Wentworth Park on 13 Jan 2013, and subsequently tested positive for a prohibited substance caffeine and its metabolites theobromine, Theophylline and paraxanthine. Caffeine is a stimulant. Mr Lee could offer no evidence as to the source of the substances detected.  The stewards, in considering their penalty took into account Mr Lees particularly poor record in relation to breaches of the prohibited substance rules.
