A prestigious horseracing series has said the British Horseracing Authority's (BHA) decision to suspend Godolphin trainer Mahmood Al Zarooni shows that the substance testing programme "works".
Qipco British Championships wrote on their website, after 11 horses including unbeaten filly, Certify tested positive for steroids, and subsequently will not be racing on Saturday.
They said: "It is a bad day for racing, but on the plus side it shows that the BHA testing programme works and that trainers cannot expect to get away with the use of performance-enhancing substances".
