Jeffrey Frusher disqualified for nine months

The Stewards of Greyhound Racing Victoria following advice from Racing Analytical Services Laboratory conducted an investigation into the results of a urine sample taken from the greyhound Breckenridge at the Ballarat GRC meeting held on 30th November, 2011.

Details of a positive swab inquiry were recently released by Greyhound Racing Victoria that pointed to an anabolic steroid that stems from last years Ballarat Cup heats in November 2011, over six months ago.


After considering the evidence, Stewards charged Mr. Frusher with breach of Greyhounds Australasia Rule 83(2) and (3) in that he did fail to present the greyhound ‘Breckenridge’ free of any prohibited substance for an event at the Ballarat GRC meeting on 30th November, 2011 given that the urine sample taken from the greyhound indicated the presence of the prohibited substance 19-NOR-5á, 17á-PREGNANE-3â, 17â-DIOL – a metabolite of the anabolic steroid norethandrolone

Under Rule 47.1 of the Greyhound Racing Victoria Local Rules this constituted a Serious Offence. As a result, on Tuesday, 15th May, 2012 and Tuesday, 5th June, 2012, this matter was heard before the Racing Appeals & Disciplinary Board in the first instance under Greyhound Racing Victoria Local Rule 47.3 and Sections 83C(b) and 83M of the Racing Act.

Mr. Jeffery Frusher was found guilty by the RADB as charged and his license was disqualified for a period of 9 months (with 3 months of this period suspended for 12 months pending no further breaches under GAR83).

Liz Chegia Disqualified For 5 Months

On 22 February 2012, Greyhound Racing South Australia Stewards completed an inquiry into the circumstances relating to the obtaining of the positive urine sample.

The positive sample was of the greyhound Man Of Honour at the Greyhound Racing SA meeting held at Gawler on Sunday 11th December 2011.


Prior to the banning of anabolic steroids in racing greyhounds, Boldenone was a commonly used steroid to keep bitches off season and also increase aggressiveness, confidence and chase in timid greyhounds. Boldenone was most commonly used in the commercially branded Anabolic Steroid “Drive”.

Just last year, Chegia’s husband Ossie received a 4 month disqualification for a positive swab stemming from the 2011 Adelaide Cup series.

Man Of Honour tested positive to the banned anabolic steroid Boldenone.
