Chester regular Marwan Koukash has been removed as a registered owner by the British Horseracing Authority (BHA) due to being declared bankrupt, according to published reports.

The 69-year-old Palestinian won the Chester Cup four times with his runners between 2008 and 2018. His record at the track stands at 97 winners. Holding a PhD in electrical engineering, the businessman owned the Salford City Reds rugby team at one time, as well as a string of hotels among his various interests.

The bankruptcy petition was filed in June of 2022 and granted in September of that year. Koukash had his final runner in November, and, as soon as the BHA was made aware of the former millionaire's situation, his colours were struck from the register.
