ALBURY trainer Andrew Dale will front a stewards inquiry in Sydney after stable star Lautaro returned a positive swab from his Scone carnival victory.

Stewards were notified from two official racing laboratories that the post-race urine sample taken from Lautaro, after winning the $100,000 Benchmark 78 Handicap (2200m) at Scone on May 13, contained altrenogest.

The inquiry into the findings has been scheduled for 11am on Friday week, July 21.
