You never know what can come out in the wash.

Some of the comments are beyond the pale.
It would suggest the abuse was not a one off and systamatic.
Any ban will not be long enough.
You just hope the other trainer looks poor compared to the other because he plays by the rules.
If you owned Camelot you would be thinking was his defeat legit?

It would make you wonder what everybody else is up to. This has major implications for the whole industry. Every trainer has the same basic tools to work with but some seem to produce very impressive results. Is it that they are gifted trainers or ????????????????????????
For the future integrity of the sport these type of stable yard inspections will have to be more frequent and more importantly for horses that are out of training.Is it possible that these sort of practices are commonplace. It is a very sad day for the sport.

i don't think there are major implications for the sport. Cycling is a booming sport and they have had more than a few problems in this area. I would maybe keep it in mind if you were looking to buy a potential brood mare from there. Steriods won't do their fertility much good.

imho in general racing public terms this is a huge own goal for the sport following on from Dettori's drug ban it shows the sport in a very bad light, for racing insiders I dont think many will be shocked at all there have been too many horses returning from the desert bearing no relation to the beast that left here 6 months earlier

drug use in newmarket(human) isn't much of a secret. I don't think dettori's ban shows the sport in a bad light, recreational drug use is not just a horse racing thing.

as far as returning horses from the desert, it may demonstrate that drug use isn't so widespread here.

Clearly if 11 horses have tested positive, most of the string must have been given something that stayed in the bloodstream after treatment in Dubai. If the practice is widespread here, many more positive tests would show up.

Id be more bothered about using an Aussie aprinting stallion.  Cos on looks your left wondering how much was due to the needle, rather than what your foal might end up like
