Snow Fairy Disqualified After French Group 1 Win

International star mare Snow Fairy has been disqualified from the Group 1 Prix Jean Romanet, which she won in August this year.

Snow Fairy was stripped of her title after she tested positive to a prohibited substance on race day.

The five-year-old was found to have traces of an anti-inflammatory treatment in her blood, which is also a banned substance.

The anti-inflammatory medication was being used to treat Snow Fairy’s tendon injury and trainer Ed Dunlop has taken full responsibility for the error.

“We have sadly learnt that Snow Fairy has been disqualified from her victory in the Prix Romanet in Deauville as a result of failing a routine dope test taken after the race,” said Dunlop.

“Due to the significant tendon injury that she suffered at the end of last year, Snow Fairy has required anti-inflammatory medication to help the injury.

“Unfortunately the withdrawal period was longer than we had been advised.

“The trainer is ultimately responsible and for that we would like to offer our sincerest apologies to all concerned parties.”

Snow Fairy has won six of her 17 career starts and has earned close to $3 million in prize money.

The Intikhab mare won her last start in the Group 1 Irish Champion Stakes at Leopardstown, where no banned substance has been recorded.

The speedy galloper is currently in the spelling paddock in England due to her re-occurring tendon issues.
