Amralah owners relied on vet: Vic court

The owners of a racehorse scratched from the Melbourne Cup say they should have been able to rely on the expertise of the vet who treated their $9 hopeful.

Four-time Melbourne Cup winner Lloyd Williams and the horse’s other owners are suing a Ballarat vet clinic, arguing its negligence caused them “catastrophic loss and harm” when Amralah tested positive to a banned substance.

“Anderson is not the local vet on the corner. He’s a registered equine specialist,” the owners’ barrister Mark Robins QC said of the defendant, Brian Howard Anderson, in a Victorian Supreme Court hearing on Thursday.
