The entrance of Godolphin stables is seen in Newmarket, where 11 horses tested positive


The future of Godolphin trainer Mahmood Al Zarooni is in serious doubt after unbeaten 1,000 Guineas hope Certify was one of 11 horses tested positive for anabolic steroids at his Newmarket stable.

In a hugely embarrassing development for Al Zarooni’s Godolphin stable boss Sheik Mohammed, the ruler of Dubai, Certify will not be allowed to take part in the Classic on May 5. The 11 horses have together won more than $2m (£1.31m) in prize money,

Al Zarooni, who has accepted responsibility for the drugs breaches with ethylestranol, the substance found in Certify, and stanozolol, now faces a BHA disciplinary hearing.

Taking an excerpt from the article

"His Highness Sheik Mohammed was absolutely appalled when he was told and this is completely unacceptable to him. We will await the outcome of the BHA inquiry before taking any further internal action."



C'mon Shiek. Do you want us to believe the above bullshit. We are appalled by your response. Didn't someone teach you to take one on the chin and move on with your life. Guess not.

I reread your post where you used my definition of a woman to call me a woman.

You imply I see what I want to see since that was what I said to FBT.

And this was in reference to the cheating at Balmoral.

I agree with your post and thread here. I just thought there was hypocrisy involved.

When you start a thread, you should respond to all posts concerning the topic.

I am still waiting for your response on how someone can fix to lose by a nose specially if the supposed fixer is leading in the stretch.

No a Hypocrite is someone who claims races are setup and rampant cheating is going on, yet goes out and bets on those very same races. Gambling and mental problem.

Par for the course.

Ever wonder why that is??

Then ask yourself--how are the Godolphin horses winning everything in Dubai--but fail  on the international scene.

Sure they win races--but not at the same strike rate as in Dubai--already won 3 World Cups there.

Then who is in charge of the testing Labs in Dubai?  BSmeter

The way the oil cartels have manipulated the price of oil and now we are to believe the Sheik is appauld???

Well yes if course he is appauld  there's a wrinkle in in his robe now and I know the Arabs do not take public humiliation well.
I would think this trainer will be picking dates in the Sahara after this.

An interesting comment on how larger society sees horse racing, this story about this affair from NPR is headlined:

"Routine On U.S. Racetracks, Horse Doping Is Banned In Europe"

From Ray Paulick:

"Godolphin trainer Mahmood al Zarooni was banned from horse racing for eight years by the disciplinary panel of the British Horseracing Authority.
 
On Monday it was announced that 11 horses trained by Al Zarooni had tested positive for two banned anabolic steroids. Al Zarooni was accompanied to Thursday's disciplinary meeting by Godolphin's racing manager, Simon Crisford.
 
After the meeting concluded, Crisford told members of the press that "I would like to apologize to Sheikh Mohammed, to all at Godolphin, and to fans of British racing."

Trainer gets 8 years, and the horses get 6 months.  Sounds about right to me.  I'd like to see us do it that way in the US.

PC USA. This story is pretty buried, even for horse racing. Imagine if this was WinStar, Live Oak Plantation, or West Point Stables,,,etc...... USA horse racing media seems light on this story for some  reason. Huh??
