Bauer in Cup drama

Quote:
Melbourne Cup runner-up Bauer is facing disqualification from this year's race, according to News Limited reports.

The report said European stayer Bauer, trained by Luca Cumani, was being investigated for treatment given to the horse in the lead-up to the race, which he collected $835,000 for his second placing behind Viewed.

The investigation will focus on electro shockwave therapy - commonly known as an ultrasound - the horse allegedly received on the Thursday prior to the Melbourne Cup, the report said.

what's wrong with having ultrasound before a race?

I can understand a drug therapy etc, but why would this be grounds for DQ?

I don't know what's wrong with therapeutic ultrasound, but they obviously have rules against it. I just don't understand why the Australian racing veterinarian wouldn't be aware of these rules, and bring them to the trainer's attention. It will be interesting to see where this will go.
