I'm not sure if it sounds like 42-year-old jockey Adrian McCarthy had the best quarantine ever or the worst, either way, he's been suspended for it...
quote:

Adrian McCarthy said he was depressed during lockdown and took the drug four or five times while drinking in a pub a day or two before the fixture. The 42-year-old had his riding license withdrawn for six months by an independent disciplinary panel.

Panel chairman James O'Mahony said the use of cocaine by riders was "pernicious" for the sport. McCarthy tested positive for metabolites of the Class A drug after riding at Chelmsford's evening meeting on 15 October 2020.

He gave a reading of 150,300 nanograms per millilitre, when the threshold for riding is 150 ng/ml.

Davison said McCarthy had been honest about his "chronic drug use" - taking cocaine about three times a week from May 2020 until his positive test, but never since.

I bet he took the horse home from the pub. Can't get a DUI that way!

You mean there is a limit? Dang, I wish I would have known this in the 90's I might have stopped at the limit.

The limit wouldn't give you any kind of buzz. But even if it did, it's coke. You still aren't stopping at the limit.

The most surprising thing here is that he got real cocaine in the pub and not some fake stepped on shite.

Exactly what I said!

I said the same thing. Shouldn’t the limit be 0.0?

Labs set a detection limit or threshold. 150 is common but they can test for lower concentrations if asked.

You can’t ride a horse all coked up? What kind of America do we live in now?
