Seven more Godophin horses test positive

Seven more horses from the mighty Dubai-owned Godolphin stable have tested positive for an anabolic steroid.

The positive drug tests follow the returns last month of 11 positive tests from Godolphin's stable in Newmarket, England, and the subsequent eight-year ban handed down to trainer Mahmood Al Zarooni, who has appealed against the severity of the ban.

The stable is owned by the ruler of Dubai Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum.
