Scandal: 2012 St Leger winner Encke was trained by Al Zarooni
‘I can only apologise for the damage this will cause to Godolphin and to racing generally.’
When jumps trainer Howard Johnson was banned for four years in 2010, one year was a result of positive steroid tests.
None of the Al Zarooni horses to test positive can currently run.
His stable was subject to a random test on April 9.
No date has been set for the hearing.
