Keeneland announced a new condition of sale which will allow buyers of yearlings and horses in training being exported to Great Britain to be tested for anabolic steroids.
The British Horseracing Authority, the official governing body of British racing, June 23 outlined a number of changes within its executive team.
Full implementation of an enhanced zero-tolerance policy regarding the use of anabolic steroids in Great Britain has been delayed until March 2015, the British Horseracing Authority announced Dec. 19.
The 15 Godolphin horses that tested positive for anabolic steroids, which led to Mahmood Al Zarooni's disciplinary hearing, will be prohibited from racing for six months.
Mounting concerns over the safety of England's Grand National steeplechase have forced organizers to make modifications to the course following a review of the world's most grueling race after two horses died this year.
The nightmare is over for jockey Olivier Doleuze, who emerged from a May 21 inquiry by Hong Kong Jockey Club stewards into a drug "irregularity" without a case to answer.
Olivier Doleuze was ruled out of Singapore's biggest day of the year May 17 when a urine sample given by the French jockey taken at Happy Valley May 14 turned up positive to an unspecified prohibited substance.
