Racing NSW Stewards have inquired into the analyst’s findings relative to a urine sample provided by licensed jockey Nick Heywood after riding in races at the Murrumbidgee Turf Club race meeting conducted at Wagga Wagga Racecourse on Monday, 8 July 2019.

Mr Heywood pleaded guilty to a charge under AR139(1)(a) in that the sample taken from him was found upon analysis to contain substances banned under AR136.

Mr Heywood was advised that under the provisions of AR283(5), should he complete a satisfactory period of professional counselling, the final three months of the suspension would be stayed allowing Mr Heywood to return on 8 March 2020.

Mr Heywood was further advised that, in accordance with AR139(4), he would be required to provide a urine sample free from any substance banned by AR136(1) prior to resuming any duties.
