League Notes: BHA To Discuss Amending Rules Of Racing

Moves to amend the Rules of Racing will begin next week when the British Horseracing Authority meets to discuss "the fallout from recent high-profile disciplinary cases involving Philip Hobbs and Hughie Morrison." Hobbs avoided sanction after an antihistamine was found in one of his horses and the BHA lost an appeal, while Morrison received only a £1,000 ($1,390) fine after a steroid was discovered in a urine sample in a mare that he trains (LONDON TIMES, 1/17).

European Professional Club Rugby opened an investigation into the comments made by Top14 side Toulon Owner Mourad Boudjellal when he "defended Mathieu Bastareaud following the French international's homophobic remarks" (REUTERS, 1/16).
