Indian racing community rocked by a steroids scandalThe anabolic steroid scandal involving a recent Classic winner ridden by Richard Hughes and two other horses, both placed in Guineas’ race has rocked the Indian racing community.

“It is shocking to find as many as three horses testing positive in the two Indian Classics run in December. It is unprecedented and intriguing. The stewards will conduct a thorough enquiry into the matter very soon,” RWITC chairman VivekJain commented.

The initial samples were tested and analysed at the Newmarket-based HFL Sport Science Laboratory.
