An out of court settlement has drawn a line under a dispute between the supplier of horse fodder and the winning owner, jockey, and trainer of the Czech Republic’s main steeplechase event. The settlement was approved Wednesday by a court in Přerov. The dispute dates back to 2015 when the winner of Pardubice steeplechase, the horse Nikas, was later disqualified after banned substances were found in tests. The owner, trainer, and jockey, lost around 2 million crowns in winnings. They maintained that the banned drugs were result of the food supplied by a company. The supplier agreed the settlement which will be shared out by the three claimants. It was the first time that the fastest finishing horse had been disqualified.
