Godolphin Horse Trainer To Face Disciplinary Panel In London Over Doping Scandal
Published April 25, 2013
STATING THEIR CASE: In London, Andy Stephens wrote racing's ruling body and trainers united Tuesday to strongly deny that the sport is tainted by drugs after revelations that 11 horses trained by Al Zarooni for Sheikh Mohammed, "the most powerful owner in the world, had tested positive for anabolic steroids." The National Trainers' Federation admitted that it was "shocked" at the news of positive tests but insisted that it was an isolated episode (THE TIMES, 4/24). In a separate article, Riddle wrote the Emirates Racing Authority "remain convinced that their drug-detection procedures are effective" despite horses under the care of Al Zarooni returning positive samples in England. Drug testing of horses "is carried out by the ERA on all race winners and that net is widened to horses placed in Group and Listed races" (THE NATIONAL, 4/23).
