Qld man charged over alleged horse doping

A MAN has been charged over his alleged involvement in suspected thoroughbred horse doping in Queensland.

Police from State Crime Command’s Queensland Racing Crime Squad charged the 25-year-old Toowoomba man with aggravated fraud on Wednesday.

“It is alleged the man was intimately involved in the purchase and administration of the supplements,” Qld police said in a statement.


It comes following an ongoing investigation into the administration of unregulated performance enhancing supplements designed to avoid detection in racing officials’ testing system.

Three people have already been charged as part of the operation.

The man is due to appear in the Toowoomba Magistrates Court on December 2.
