The FEI Tribunal has issued its Final Decision in an equine anti-doping case involving a Banned Substance.

In this case, the horse Easy Boy 23 (FEI ID 105AF89 /ESA), owned by Andrea Alvaro (FEI ID 10114776/ARG), tested positive for the Banned Substances Boldenone, Boldienone and Boldenone Undecylenate, following samples taken at the CSIO4* Wellington (USA), on 25 February to 1 March 2020.

The owner admitted having administered the product Anabolde to the horse, containing the Banned Substance Boldenone Undecylenate, which is prohibited at all times. She consequently admitted the violation.

The owner accepted a six months reduction of the ineligibility period. Consequently, in its Final Decision, the FEI Tribunal imposed an 18-month ineligibility period on the owner, starting the date of the decision (3 November 2021). She was also fined CHF 5,000.

The parties can appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) within 21 days of receipt of the decision.
