The information shocked the American sports, 27 horse racing coaches, veterinarians and support staff were charged with using doping for racing horses to cheat to get money from gamblers.
According to CNN (USA), more than twenty people participating in horse racing events have been accused of building a process of using doping to help horse racing win many races around the world. US federal prosecutors announced the information on Monday.
Coach Jason Servis and Horse Maximum Security are accused of using doping to attend many races.
One of the defendants was coach Jason Servis. Prosecutors said the man had possessed performance-enhancing drugs for “all racing horses under his control”.
The indictment later said, Servis – the horse coach Maximum Security was first in the Kentucky Derby last year and then eliminated because of suspicion of doping. Earlier, Maximum Security won $ 10 million after winning the Saudi Cup opening race in Riyadh – the world’s richest horse race in Saudi Arabia.
That is information that makes the equestrian world and the audience of the racing industry worth $ 100 billion extremely urgent, and they feel angry when a group of people “cheat” to profit from their own pockets.
Prosecutors said investigators discovered evidence of “cruel and inhumane” treatment of 27 horses accused of fraud. “Revealing four indictments about the horse doping scandal is the largest ever prosecution of the Justice Department,” Manhattan Justice Secretary Geoffrey Berman said in a statement.
The type of horse doping makes “an increase in performance beyond their natural ability,” says William Sweeney, assistant director, head of the FBI office in New York. The drugs used can increase the number of red blood cells, endure, relieve pain and reduce arthritis.
Doping abusive horses have made some big bucks at races in New York, New Jersey, Florida, Ohio, Kentucky (USA) and the UAE. One of the 27 accused, coach Jorge Navarro, is said to have trained a horse named “XY Jet”, a thoroughbred horse that won the 2019 Golden Shaheen race in Dubai.
“XY Jet” after using performance-enhancing drugs died in January 2020 due to a heart problem.
