On Wednesday, April 10, the Ontario Racing Commission released its ruling regarding an appeal, request for hearing, and motion from horseman Dan Creighton for a third-party disclosure.

Creighton's appeal, request for hearing, and motion is in regard to the situation surrounding one of his horses, Quantum Cashman. The horse in question produced a positive test after winning a race on June 17, 2012 at Clinton Raceway.

  • the last 10 urine/blood collection cards, which were prepared and signed by Albert 'Grant' Vincent, for the testing of official samples in his capacity as Chief Test Inspector, for Racing Forensics Inc. prior to Sunday, June 17, 2012, at 3:30 p.m. at Clinton Raceway, Ontario;
