Robert and John Dunn have lodged an appeal with the Judicial Control Authority against the $14,000 fine they received late last month.

Robert Dunn confirmed today that he and his son will seek a review of the fine amount after the prosecuting Racing Integrity Unit only submitted for a $4,000 fine.

The Dunns were charged over four swabs from three horses in their care that showed the presence of caffeine, all four swabs coming from race-winners.

All four winners were disqualified after the Dunns pled guilty to charges of presenting them to race not free of a prohibited substance.
