Advice To Trainers: Feeding Of Barastoc Phar Lap Feed

Trainers are warned in respect to the use of some commercially available feeds that have been found to contain levels of cobalt above that specified on the labels.

In particular, the analysis by two laboratories of feed samples taken from Barastoc Phar Lap Oats-Free Muesli Concentrated Feed manufactured on 23 March 2017 and 22 May 2017 have been found to contain levels of cobalt excessively above the disclosed analysis on the product label.

Prior to feeding this product, trainers should satisfy themselves as to the level of cobalt contained in this product to ensure that horses presented to race are done so in accordance with the Rules of Racing.

General Advice to Trainers Regarding Feed and Supplements Separate to the advice above, Racing NSW Stewards are aware that some trainers are having manufacturers prepare custom-made horse feeds, feed additives, and/or supplements. It is understood that some manufacturers are not listing:

a. all active constituents; and/or b. the concentration of all active constituents,

on the labels of their custom-made products. Among other things, this makes it difficult for trainers to fully understand what the active constituents of their horses’ feeds and supplements are, and what the concentrations of those constituents are.

Trainers are reminded of their obligations to know what they are feeding, and/or administering to, their horses, including the concentrations of active constituents of any products used by them.

In the event that trainers are not aware of the active constituents of their horses’ feeds, feed additives and/or supplements (and the concentrations of such constituents), they should:

a. exercise caution in feeding such products to their horses; and b. take immediate steps to ascertain the active constituents of their horses’ feeds, feed additives and/or supplements (and the concentrations of such constituents).
