Trainer fired after being charged for doping Maximum Security
- Jason Servis indicted in US over alleged mass doping scheme
- Maximum Security considered one of world’s best racehorses
The owner of Maximum Security has fired the racehorse’s trainer after he was charged in a wide-ranging doping scandal.
Indictments in federal court in New York allege that Jason Servis was among 27 individuals, including trainers and vets, who doped racehorses. Those horses include Maximum Security, who won last month’s $10m Saudi Cup, the richest horse race in the world. Maximum Security also crossed the line first in last year’s Kentucky Derby but was disqualified after stewards ruled the colt had impeded the path of two other horses in the final turn. According to Monday’s charges, Servis doped “virtually all the racehorses under his control”.
