ALLAN Endresz is set for another lengthy court battle, declaring he will initiate legal action in the Supreme Court after Alligator Blood was stripped of his Magic Millions Guineas win on Thursday.
Queensland stewards found trainer David Vandyke guilty of presenting his superstar galloper to race with a prohibited substance.
Traces of altrenogest were found in a post race sample.
Vandyke was fined $20,000.
The decision has also left his owners without the $1.16 million in prizemoney.
Endresz had previously vowed to clear Alligator Blood's name and that of his trainer if his horse was disqualified from the race.
"I will be going to the Supreme Court - there is no doubt about that," Endresz told Racenet.
"In addition to what I have talked about previously there now also the issue of the (Queensland Racing Integrity Commission) swabbing policies, which we haven't even been provided with.
"We want to know the timing of the swabs, the gap in the timing, the level of security around the swabs taken on raceday."

The Greg Hickman-trained runner-up Eleven Eleven was promoted as the winner.
The owners will receive an additional $800,000.
Vandyke has the option of appealing the decision through the Queensland racing appeals system.
The hearing was heard behind closed doors with Endresz not allowed to attend.
Alligator Blood is being set for the world's richest turf race, The Everest which is worth $15 milllion at Randwick in October.
Endresz has regularly been in the spotlight during the past two decades with his legal battle where he is suing the federal government for $4.3 billion compensation.
