Sheikh Mohammed locks down Al Zarooni stable
By Stuart Riley 3:39PM 24 APR 2013
SHEIKH MOHAMMED has decided to lock down the Newmarket stable occupied by Mahmood Al Zarooni with immediate effect in the wake of revelations at least 15 of the horses based at the yard were administered anabolic steroids.
Why would a Racing Post reporter claim "at least 15 horses" were doped while the BHA are saying it was 11 horses?
The BHA said yesterday it had no plans to test horses at the other Godolphin stables where Saeed Bin Suroor is trainer.
“They are separate trainers,” said BHA spokesman Robin Mousey, “and we wouldn’t link them because of a common owner as a result of this. It doesn’t however rule it out though. We reserve the right to test any trainer’s horses at any time.”
Why not test Suroor's horse and reassure the public the incident is isolated to the one yard?
Dubai's ruler accused of slavery
Dubai's ruler has been accused of enslaving thousands of young children for camel races in a class-action lawsuit filed in the US.
The action claims Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid al-Maktoum, his brother Hamdam and 500 others are responsible for abducting and trafficking the children.
It was filed on behalf of six unidentified parents and thousands of unnamed children.
There has been no comment on the action from the accused.
The children were said to be from Bangladesh, Sudan and southern Asia.
Once in Dubai, it is claimed that the children - some of them as young as two - were kept in poor conditions, starved (so as to keep their weight down), abused and forced to take part in a dangerous sport.
what country were those solid principles based on?
