O'Brien in hot water

Aidan O'Brien has been officially charged by the British Horseracing Authority with breaching rules following Cape Blanco's victory in the Dante Stakes at York in May.

The Ballydoyle handler refused to allow his stable lad Pat Keating permission to trot the horse up in front of the BHA's veterinary officer and the senior racecourse veterinary surgeon as part of their examination of the colt.
