Guidelines for Classification of Prohibited Substances and the Guidelines for Penalties for Prohibited Substances.
The Guidelines for Classification of Prohibited Substances document provides a list of substances with the classification of these into classes (Class 1 to 5) related to the considered severity of the finding of the particular substances in a horse on race day. The list is inclusive of the local veterinary and human substances considered most important in treatment, or of particular concern, within horseracing in South Africa. The Guidelines for Penalties for Prohibited Substances document provides a guide to the penalties to be imposed associated with the prohibited substances considered in the Classification of Prohibited Substances document.
These documents were approved by the NHA Rules Committee on 8 April 2014 and the NHA National Board on 24 April 2014.
Phenylbutazone has now been rescheduled as a Schedule 7 substance by the Department of Health. This implies that no person may acquire, use, possess, manufacture or supply phenylbutazone. This makes phenylbutazone a substance which is forbidden in racing. According to the NHA Classification of Prohibited Substances, a forbidden substance is a Class 1 substance. It must be noted that phenylbutazone and its metabolite oxyphenbutazone are therefore listed as Class 1 substances and not Class 4 substances, which normal NSAID’s are.
The Classification of Prohibited Substances and the Guidelines for Penalties for Prohibited Substances can be accessed from the menu items in both the Laboratory and Veterinary sections above.
