Racing Victoria (RV) Stewards will conduct an inquiry tomorrow, 29 June 2017, into the results of a urine sample provided by licensed jockey Michelle Payne at the Swan Hill Cup meeting on 11 June 2017.

The 31 year-old, who in 2015 became the first woman to win the 156-year-old race, was informed she had tested positive on Friday, three days after making her Royal Ascot debut.

Her remarks to local broadcaster Channel Seven after the race also went down in sporting folklore, as she spoke of her battle for respect in a "chauvinist" industry.

It is classed as a banned substance in accordance with Australian Rule of Racing 81B.

Ms Payne was stood down from all riding duties by Stewards last week.

Facing defections, Senate GOP leaders delay health care vote
After the president made his opening remarks, he asked the press to leave so that they could discuss the bill. A group of Republican senators has already said they will not vote for the bill in its current form.

If found guilty, the standard ban for testing positive to a suppressant like this is believed to be about one or two months.

The Herald Sun attempted to contact Payne on Wednesday night.

Payne underwent surgery for a torn pancreas following the fall in Mildura.

Earlier this year Payne took out a trainer's licence.
