Eleven horses
from the Godolphin stable have tested positive for anabolic steroids in one of
the biggest doping scandals in British racing history.
Godolphin trainer Mahmood Al Zarooni will attend a British Horseracing
Authority inquiry after irregularities were discovered in 11 of 45 racehorses.

Al Zarooni has admitted making "a catastrophic mistake".
"This is a dark day for Godolphin," said stable manager Simon Crisford. "We
are all shocked by what has happened."
The 11 horses, who together have won more than $2m (£1.31m) in prize money,
include unbeaten Certify, who will not be allowed to run in next month's 1,000
Guineas at Newmarket.
