Sir Henry Cecil, who's died at the age of 70, was one of the most popular and greatest racehorse trainers of this, or any other, era.
Racehorse trainer Mahmood Al Zarooni has been disqualified for eight years after 11 of his horses tested positive for anabolic steroids.
The Newmarket Godolphin stables are at the centre of horse doping allegations involving 11 horses and the trainer Mahmood Al Zarooni.

Horse racing commentator Derek Thompson says he was stunned when he heard the news that 11 horses at the Godolphin stables in Newmarket were tied up in a doping scandal.
He said: "This news is stunning. Eleven horses tested positive, not one or two who might have been ill. That is not good news."

A statement on the Godolphin website read: "Following an inspection of Zarooni's stable by officials from the British Horseracing Authority, traces of prohibited substances were discovered in a number of the horses tested, including Certify.
"The BHA has advised that, as a result, the filly will not be allowed to take part in the Qipco 1000 Guineas at Newmarket next month."
Godolphin trainer Al Zarooni based in Newmarket said on www.godolphin.com: "I deeply regret what has happened. I have made a catastrophic error.
"Because the horses involved were not racing at the time, I did not realise that what I was doing was in breach of the rules of racing. I can only apologise for the damage this will cause to Godolphin and to racing generally."
Newmarket-based Godolphin trainer Mahmood Al Zarooni is to face a British Horseracing Authority disciplinary panel hearing after samples taken from 11 horses in his care in the Suffolk home of horse racing were found to contain traces of anabolic steroids.
Al Zarooni, who won the Ladbrokes St Leger at Doncaster last year with Encke, as well as the richest race in the world, the Dubai World Cup, with Monterosso, has trained a whole host of big-race winners since joining Sheikh Mohammed's operation.
Al Zarooni told the Godolphin website he had made a "catastrophic error".
