COBALT VET TO PLEAD FOR LENIENCE

-

THE Flemington vet linked to trainers Danny O’Brien and Mark Kavanagh will plead for his profession­al life in Sydney tomorrow.

Flemington Equine Centre’s Tom Brennan is facing disqualifi­cation from NSW racing after being found guilty of 12 charges relating to the Sam Kavanagh cobalt case.

Brennan will make a submission to Racing NSW stewards before they hand down their penalty.

The case against him was damning. In a written report of their findings, stewards found Brennan supplied two $1000 bottles of a “vitamin complex” containing cobalt to Sam Kavanagh. Vitamins usually cost about $50.
