Melbourne Cup winning jockey turned Queensland trainer Chris Munce has been suspended for race day treatment. The Queensland Racing Integrity Commission announced the three month ban after Munce pleaded guilty to giving Lady Brahmos an injection in contravention to the rules of racing and providing false and misleading evidence to Integrity Officers.

He was also fined $5000. Lady Brahmos was scratched prior to racing at Eagle Farm in October last year. QRIC stewards said Munce's ban should serve as a deterrent for other trainers.

“These breaches of the rules are disappointing and despite the warnings and ongoing pre-race testing, they are an ongoing problem for the integrity of the sport,” Acting Racing Integrity Commissioner Mark Ainsworth said. “Racing participants should be aware we are out there testing, and their practises are being scrutinised so if they are breaking the rules they will be caught."
