Detorri and all that drug stuff (MCR)

Storm in a teacup. My money is on the 'banned substance' being cocaine. He will probably end up with a ban like Kieren Fallon did a few years ago. Hasnt done anything worse than whats done in pub toilets throughout Britain every weekend. Silly lad, but you cant keep a man like FD down.

Unless he's sharing with the horses what difference does it make, he's only sat on the bloody thing.

Exactly. Its already been made clear that the substance found wasnt performance enhancing for a jockey.

Do they test for drug taking so it looks like a proper sport?

From what I understand, in terms of doping in sport, "performance enhancing" doesn't necessarily mean something that improves performance - it could mean a drug that enables to perform at all e.g. something that relieves or abolishes a sense of pain, and allows you to continue performing despite an underlying injury.

Hence, while cocaine or marijuana are unlikely to improve your performance, they could help you temporarily soldier on.

In this sense, alcohol may also be considered to be a doping agent, though one that would be difficult to regulate.

So, a Ginsters pastie could be a doping agent.

* And a dangerous one at that.

Said it before on here and I'll say it again. I couldnt care less if people dont want to call it a sport. Racing is its own thing, a thing that has the second biggest crowds after football and has a seven day a week national newspaper dedicated to it. How many 'sports' can say that? Exactly. Now Feck Off!

And here he comes. Driving onto the forecourt at Woolley Edge. Pulling ahead of the tan Corsa to pump four. Round the corner and past the blonde with the shiny shoes to the refrigerated straight. The not-drugs-at-all west country quarry is clearly now in his sights. It's just a matter of time......


* Why, yes I am.
