Hayes "Shockwave Therapy" Inquiry Today

Thursday, 3rd December 2009

Racing Victoria stewards will reconvene an inquiry today into the use of shockwave therapy treatment on the David Hayes-trained Poison Ivy. The inquiry opened at the Moonee Valley night meeting on November 20, when stewards ordered the late withdrawal of Poison Ivy “acting on a report from RV’s Compliance Assurance Team that the horse had received shockwave treatment therapy 2 days prior to the meeting”. Under Australian Rule of Racing 65H a horse that has been subjected to shockwave treatment therapy “is ineligible to race or trial in the 7 days following such treatment”.
