PH could lose equestrian gold

Filipino-American Colin Syquia has yet to make a decision whether to contest the international equestrian federation (FEI) findings that stated his mount, Adventure E, was found to have taken banned substance.

FEI came out with a “table of suspension” that included the horse of Syquia, a New York-based horse dealer who brought the Philippines its only gold medal in the Kuala Lumpur Southeast Asian Games last August.

If the test is finalized, Syquia could lose his SEA Games gold.

Adventure E was found to have Clomethiazole, a banned substance, in its blood. The horse was suspended for two months by FEI. The 46-year-old Syquia was “provisionally” suspended but the FEI decision didn’t say how long.

National team manager Danny Virata said they were informed of the FEI findings but until now have yet to hear from Syquia.
