The FEI Tribunal has issued two Consent Awards in an equine anti-doping case involving Banned Substances.
In this case, the horse Lucky Boy Du Jugant (FEI ID 106PN38/UAE), ridden by Ajamal Jamsaid Alam (FEI ID 10114848/UAE) and trained by Musab Saleh Al Marzooqi (FEI ID 10113747/UAE), tested positive for the Banned Substances Nandrolone and its metabolite 5α-estrone-3β, 17α-diol, following samples taken at the CEI1*100 - Bou Thib (UAE), on 6 January 2021.
The positive finding was initially notified as an Atypical Finding (“ATF”) following which further investigation was carried out, resulting in the decision by the Atypical Findings Panel, that this ATF should be pursued as an Anti-Doping Rule Violation.
Both athlete and trainer admitted the rule violation and accepted the consequences proposed by the FEI. In its Consent Award, the FEI Tribunal disqualified the horse and athlete from the event, and imposed an 18-month suspension on the athlete and the trainer. The period of the provisional suspension of athlete and trainer, which came into effect on 3 March 2021, shall be credited against the imposed ineligibility period, meaning both will be ineligible until 02 September 2022. They have each also been fined CHF 5,000.
