The FEI has announced two adverse analytical findings (AAF) involving two equine prohibited substances.
The cases involve two *Banned Substances under the FEI’s Equine Anti-Doping and Controlled Medication Regulations (EADCMRs).
The first case involves Ergonovine, which is also designated as a **Specified Substance.
As Specified Substances may enter a horse’s system inadvertently, due to a credible non-doping explanation, the FEI and/or the FEI Tribunal have more flexibility when prosecuting a case or when making a sanctioning decision.
