Champion Greyhound Tests Positive For Banned Substance
A champion Irish greyhound has tested positive for a cocaine-like drug.
Clonbrien Hero, winner of the prestigious Laurels race, showed traces of benzoylecgonine in three samples.
The dog - which is trained by Graham Holland - tested positive for the prohibited substance in July.
The Irish Greyhound Board has released a statement in response to the allegations this morning - but says it can't comment on individual cases.
The board says the findings "have been referred to the Control Committee and which may proceed to investigation".
