Bubble N Squeak Prohibited Substance
Leopardstown – 10th November 2002


The Referrals Committee, Dr. Gordon A. Holmes (in the Chair), Mr. P.J.A. O’Connor and Mrs. T.K. Cooper met in the Standhouse Hotel, The Curragh, Co. Kildare on Tuesday 29th August 2006 to enquire into a report from BHP Laboratories, Limerick, which stated that the urine sample taken from Bubble N Squeak, trained by F. Flood, following her win in the Leopardstown November (Premier) Handicap at Leopardstown on 10th November 2002, was found to contain Morphine.  Under Rule 20 (v), Morphine is a prohibited substance.

Evidence was heard from Mr. Andrew Coonan, Solicitor, on behalf of the trainer.

Having considered the evidence, the Committee found that F. Flood was in breach of Rule 148 (ii) and imposed the mandatory fine of €130.  However, they instructed the fine be waived in view of the evidence furnished.  They also disqualified Bubble N Squeak and ordered that the result be amended to read as follows:-

First: Queens Wharf
Second: Beef Or Salmon
Third: Quadco
Fourth: Balapour

Mr. Brian Price, Wilkinson & Price Solicitors, Naas, Co. Kildare presented the case to the Committee. F. Flood was represented by Mr. Andrew Coonan of Coonan Cawley Solicitors, Naas, Co. Kildare.
