International horse racing stables Godolphin has said today that their horse Certify will not be taking part in the Qipco British Horseracing Championship, after allegations that 11 of trainer Mahmood Al Zarooni's horses tested positive for anabolic steroids.
In a statement on the website, Godophin said:
Following an inspection of Zarooni's stable by officials from the BHA, 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.
Al Zarooni has admitted that he was responsible for the administration of the prohibited substances.
