Also the 15 Godolphin horses, trained by Mahmood Al Zarooni and known to have been administered prohibited substances, are suspended from racing until October 9, 2013. The suspension has been imposed by the British Horseracing Authority and is separate from the current disciplinary process.
Jamie Stier, Director of Raceday Operations and Regulation at the BHA, said: “The length of suspension reflects the period beyond which the BHA is confident that the horses in question can have derived no performance-related benefit.”
The horses are: Artigiano (USA), Bathrat Amal (Jpn), Certify (USA), Comitas (GB), Desert Blossom (Ire), Fair Hill (GB), Ghostflower (Ire), Opinion Poll (Ire), Orkney Island (GB), Restraint Of Trade (Ire), Sashiko (GB), Sweet Rose (GB), Tearless (GB), Vacationer (GB), Valley Of Queens (Ire)—
