This crackdown was ordered by an investigating judge in Aix-en-Provence as part of an open judicial investigation, in particular for equine doping, following information obtained by the Marseille judicial police.

Several searches were underway on Tuesday morning, in particular at the Calas training center (Bouches-du-Rhône) where the Rossi family’s horses are practiced, according to the source close to the file.
