The FEI Tribunal has issued a Consent Award in an equine anti-doping case involving a Banned Substance.

In this case, a horse trained by Ruben Dario Flores (FEI ID 10168197/ARG), tested positive for the Banned Substance Stanozolol following samples taken at the CEIYJ2*120 Capitan Sarmiento (ARG), 15-16 July 2021.

The trainer admitted the rule violation and accepted the consequences. In its final decision the FEI Tribunal disqualified the horse from the event and imposed an 18-month ineligibility period on the trainer; the provisional suspension he already served shall be credited against the imposed ineligibility period. He was also fined CHF 5,000 and the cost of the B sample.
