Surrey equine expert comments on the Queen’s racehorse doping ‘scandal’

Professor Chris Proudman, Head of the School of Veterinary Medicine, explains how contaminated feed could be blamed for the racehorse’s positive drugs test.

Professor Proudman has more than 20 years’ experience as an equine clinician, teacher and researcher. His current research is informed by his clinical experience in equine gastroenterology, and he has recently undertaken studies on behalf of the Horseracing Betting Levy Board, veterinary charitable trusts and the Egyptian Government.
