Clive Brittain admits treating some of his horses with Sungate
Tuesday 11 June 2013
Investigations by the British Horseracing Authority into the use of Sungate in racing remain "ongoing" as the veteran trainer Clive Brittain became the latest to speak of the drug's use.
Brittain, who has won six British Classics, and the Breeders' Cup Turf with Pebbles, told The Guardian that some of his horses, who were out of training and recovering from serious injury, had been treated with Sungate, which contains the banned steroid stanozolol.
Brittain said would be "surprised" if charges were brought against him and added: "They [the BHA] came round and we had a talk. We've never had a horse test positive for anything."

Duke Cosimo (7.10 Kempton) Nearly impossible for handicapper to assess. Looks dangerously treated for one so well-bred.
