Townsville Bulletin - - SPORT -

THE vet at the cen­tre of cobalt in­ves­ti­ga­tions in two states is one of two peo­ple to face ad­di­tional charges in the case in­volv­ing Syd­ney trainer Sam Ka­vanagh.

Dr Tom Bren­nan of the Flem­ing­ton Equine Clinic and har­ness rac­ing iden­tity John Camil­leri have both been charged with giv­ing false ev­i­dence to the Rac­ing NSW in­quiry.

Bren­nan orig­i­nally de­nied be­ing the source of two bot­tles sent to Ka­vanagh la­belled Vi­ta­min Com­plex, which were later found to con­tain cobalt.

Last week, Bren­nan changed his ev­i­dence but de­nied know­ing the bot­tles con­tained the banned sub­stance. He also ad­mit­ted he had de­stroyed cler­i­cal records of their de­liv­ery by mail to Ka­vanagh.

Bren­nan is al­ready fac­ing sev­eral charges in the Sam Ka­vanagh case.
