The FEI has a zero tolerance policy. Not an aspirin, etc. At the last 2 Olympics several horses were disqualified due to capsaisin, etc in the sold over the counter hoof packing and poultice.

Yeah I heard about the ban! I'm dissapointed for him but 6 months doesn't seem too long. I have to give him credit for notifying the FEI about his horse testing positive.. perhaps he really had no clue and it was all the trainer's doing? who was probably under so much pressure that he got desperate?

Isn't sheikh Hamdan under investigation also? I wonder what his outcome will be...

Yes Hamdan is also being investigated. I think we will know in a few days or in a few weeks. I think he will also get a ban but not sure for how long. My guess is that Sheikh Mohammed didnt get 1year is because he notified them and that is only my guess where I think Sheikh Hamdan didnt. I also think the doping has a ban of 1 year (I dont recall where I read it, maybe it was on the FEI site)

Sheik Mohammed ban shame: Endurance horse's failed dope test leads to six-month penalty | Mail Online

6 months, Mo should be opening the champagne. The media never intended to really pick up on the topic, a huge scandal since he's one of the biggest sponsors of racing at least in the UK and Dubai. Can't even imagine what would happen to the sport if Mo withdrew his money. All in all he got off lightly, others are banned or warned off for a much longer time period.

I think he got off lightly too. No excuses should have been entertained. < ed by Warren >

Maybe because he notified the FEI about the situation that they felt a shorter ban would be ok.. plus the fact that the trainer admitted that it was him who had given the drug to the horse also took the blame off sh. Mohammed. Overall Mo had been very co-operative and even launched a personal investigation into why he had discovered his horse tested positive and why he was informed so late.

The most amusing part of his six month ban is that it ends on October 3.

I did not understand th eban if it ends in October then Sheikh Mohammed would be banned from racing since April but yet he participated in a race in England and won 1st place. Where is the ban? Unless I am missing something which I am sure I am not.

I am only gessing now but maybe the event he participated in and won was not listed as FEI event or something that counts as "official". Maybe he set up and sponsored his own event and won it - wouldn't be the first time would it

It was clear that there wouldn't be too much fuss about the issue since nobody will harm the goose that lays the golden eggs so to say. Where would parts of horsesport be without Mo's money

Sheikh Mohammed's recycled racehorses

If you live in the UK and are an EXPERIENCED rider, able to provide an ex Goldolphin horse with continuing training and a loving home, if approved you could have a Goldolphin gelding for 100.00 GBP + VAT.

I love the idea that Sheikh Mo funds rehabilitation for horses that haven't made the grade or are retired.

Lots of them are getting a new career in dressage, showjumping, showing, eventing, hunting, polo or just being companion animals and family hacks and doing Pony Club stuff.
