Hair follicle testing

Meeting swab results are only announced if there is a positive. Hair follicle testing is the same in that unless there is a positive result, results will not be published. The RIU has so far taken hair follicles for testing at two greyhound race meetings. There have been no positive results from the testing that have been carried out, including those taken at the NZ Cup meeting. There is only one racing laboratory (Melbourne) that is accredited for hair testing in Australasia and this accreditation only occurred last year. The monthly integrity report in the On Track magazine reports the number of monthly drug tests, and the number of positives by month and year to date.
