Payne suspended after positive drug test

Payne had tested positive to Phentermine, a banned appetite suppressant, after submitting a urine sample at a regional meeting in Swan Hill in Australia's southern state of Victoria on June 11.

Racing Victoria stewards will conduct an enquiry on Friday into the results, the state authority said in a statement.

"Ms Payne was advised of (the) findings and stood down from riding in races and trackwork by stewards on 23 June 2017," RV said.
