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...
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 The 42-year-old had his riding license withdrawn for six months by an independent disciplinary panel.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.
