04/02/02 Baldwin's Inquiry to Continue Friday
An inquiry into a swab irregularity returned by a horse trained by Queenslander Barry Baldwin in Macau recently will continue on Friday after being adjourned late last week.

A sample from the Baldwin trained Cheers Forever was found to contain the major metabolite of acepromazine "which is a tranquilizer and a prohibited substance under the Macau Jockey Club Rules of Racing."

During the initial inquiry on Friday evidence was taken from Baldwin along with the Jockey Club's Senior Chemist Bertrand Baudot and the Senior Veterinary Surgeon Dr Martin Wainscott.

The report stated that "Baldwin (also) explained that he received information from professional people in Australia that the detection period for the metabolite of acepromazine could be longer than originally expected."

"As such he sought an adjournment to enable his staff to thoroughly view video films taken by the surveillance system installed in his stables."

After considering that Stewards adjourned the inquiry until 10am on Friday.
