Jockey Adrian McCarthy regretful after ban for being 1,000 times over cocaine limit

The 42-year-old had his riding licence withdrawn for six months by an independent disciplinary panel.

Panel chairman James O’Mahony said the use of cocaine by riders was “pernicious” for the sport.

In another case heard on Thursday, jockey Finley Marsh, 22, also had his licence withdrawn for six months.

He admitted evading anti-doping testers after taking cocaine, calling it “a mistake that broke me for a very long time”. more

  5. Living in NorCal during the 80z, I met people from Medellín, Columbia.
    Some were x-jockys. They wore lots of Gold and Diamond jewelry.
    Presently, they were transporting Race Horses to the US, from Columbia.
    Race Horses were air transported and rushed thru the entry process.
    These transporters, stuffed LARGE amounts of quality Cocaine up the horses asses.
