Newmarket Horse doping scandal: no further charges

Horse racing and the Godolphin stable in Newmarket will face no further charges after the investigation into one of the most serious doping scandals in recent British racing history.

The British Horse Racing Authority said there was no evidence of any other parties being involved in the distribution of anabolic steroids, other than former trainer Mahmood Al Zarooni.

He was subsequently suspended for eight years after 22 horses, including last season's St Leger winner Encke, tested positive for banned substances earlier in the year.
