Disqualified Godolphin trainer Mahmood Al Zarooni has reiterated his regret in a written statement issued after the British Horseracing Authority banned him for eight years.
First and foremost, I would like to apologise to his Highness, Sheikh Mohammed, as well as all those involved in Godolphin and the public.
I accept it was my responsibility to be aware of the rules regarding prohibited substances in Britain.
I can only apologise. I have made a catastrophic error.
