Godolphin trainer Mahmood Al Zarooni will stand before a disciplinary panel of the British Horseracing Authority later today after samples taken from 11 of his horses were found to have contained traces of anabolic steroids.
Al Zarooni could lose his training licence in one of the most significant doping scandals in recent racing history. The hearing is due to be held this lunchtime in central London.
The 37-year-old has officially been charged with rule breaches related to prohibited substances, duty to keep medication records, and conduct prejudicial to racing.
