Billionaire property mogul and horse trainer, Luke Comer, has found himself in the middle of an unprecedented doping scandal after 12 of his horses tested positive for anabolic steroids. Comer, who was previously in the headlines for having a 300-1 winner, insists he is innocent and is willing to spend millions more to clear his name.
Millionaire Trainer Banned for Three Years
Luke Comer, a billionaire horse trainer, has been banned for three years following the discovery that 12 of his horses tested positive for anabolic steroids. The Irish Horseracing Regulatory Board (IHRB) found no direct evidence of deliberate doping in Comer's case.
Comer Declares Innocence and Vows to Clear His Name
Comer, who denies any wrongdoing in the doping scandal, has already spent over £1 million in his efforts to prove his innocence. He has even hired private investigators to find the source of the contamination. The plasterer-turned-businessman is prepared to spend even more money to ensure that whoever has damaged his reputation pays.
Comer's Passion for Horses and Racing
Comer, who previously had a 300-1 winner in racing history, insists that he is innocent and that he cares deeply about the welfare of his horses. He spends £8.6 million annually on horses, breeding, and training, emphasizing that he is not in the game for money.
Despite the controversy, Comer expresses his desire for the winnings from successful races to go to smaller trainers who depend on them for their livelihood. He states, "If a horse ran well, I would rather the money would go to a smaller trainer whose livelihood depended on it."
