Former Trainer Moody Draws Ire For Twitter Comments Regarding Top Training Stable And Cobalt

Racing Victoria officials have refuted an accusation from former trainer Peter Moody who claimed the organization has stopped testing for cobalt. Moody also insinuated that one of the top racing stables in the country, Lindsay Park, has had one of their horses test positive for the prohibited substance.

According to a report at Racing.com, Moody stirred up the controversy on Wednesday when he tweeted, “Any truth a leading vic(toria) stable has COBALT positive in nsw where they have few runners compared to home state”?

He followed that with “Feed the same for horses in both stables. Maybe RVL (Racing Victoria) not testing for COBALT at moment. Couldn’t risk more positives”

According to Racing.com, Racing NSW stewards have warned trainers who use Barastoc Phar Lap Oats-Free Muesli Concentrated Feed that it may contain excess levels of cobalt.

Lindsay Park Stables, which is run by David and Ben Hayes and Tom Dabernig, quickly put out a denial on Twitter –

“Rumour mill going crazy. FACT: Lindsay Park DO NOT have a positive to Cobalt, or any other medication in Vic/NSW or anywhere else #FakeNews”

Moody received a six-month ban in 2016 after his horse Lidari tested positive for cobalt. He no longer holds a trainers license, and has become an “outspoken critic” of the way the controversy was handled.
