Gask runners unable to start due to 'ignorance'

EMBARASSED Jeremy Gask admitted that 'ignorance' led to two of his horses being barred from running at Wolverhampton.

His pair were prevented from taking their chance on Wednesday's card after a stable security guard spotted them being administered a substance orally on their horsebox by the trainer's staff.

Gask, who was at Kempton at the time, admitted that the horses had been given a supplement but stressed: "It is a natural blend of branch chain amino acids which contains no prohibited substances. It is purely to aid recovery on horses that don't recover well after a long trip.

"I was unaware of the rule that you can't administer anything on raceday and it is my ignorance."
