A country Victorian trainer has been suspended for eight months in Australian racing’s first peptide case.

Stawell-based Paul Jones fronted the Racing Appeals and Disciplinary Board on Monday on charges of administration and possession of TB-1000.

The product contains a synthetic peptide which is an active fragment of Thymosin Beta 4, the substance at the centre of the Essendon AFL scandal which resulted in 34 players from the team being suspended for 12 months.

Jones pleaded guilty to the two charges against him.

He was disqualified for six months for administering, or causing to be administered, TB-1000 to General Sateen last year.

He was outed for another four months for possession of four vials of TB-1000, found by Racing Victoria’s Compliance Assurance Team during a stable inspection in February.

The RAD Board ruled that two months of his first charge would be served concurrently, ruling Jones out for eight months.

TB-1000 is a prohibited substance and not registered for medical or veterinary use.

General Sateen did not start in a race after receiving the product and was subsequently retired.
