    HARNESS Racing SA stewards concluded an inquiry into a report received from Racing Analytical Services Ltd  in relation to a saliva sample provided by licenced driver Ken Rogers at Port Pirie on Saturday, February 15 2020.

    After taking evidence and hearing submissions from Rogers, stewards issued a charge under Australian Harness Racing Rule 250(1)(a) which states: A person commits an offence if – A sample taken from him is found upon analysis to contain a substance banned by Rule 251

    Rogers pleaded guilty to the charge.

    After considering submissions on penalty Rogers had his licence suspended for a period of nine months, backdated to commence on February 27, the date on which he was stood down.

    Rogers was also informed that upon the completion of a recognised specialised health and recovery program he could make application to the stewards and his penalty may be reviewed.

    In determining penalty, Stewards took into account:

    • Rogers guilty plea.
    • The intention of the rule, which is to ensure participant safety and protect the integrity of the harness racing industry.
    • The forthright evidence provided and remorse shown by Rogers.
    • Rogers current financial and personal circumstances.
    • The nature of the banned substance detected.
    • Usual penalties involve the imposition of suspension.

    Rogers was advised his rights of appeal.
