This is what they should get.

Participants in Queensland's three racing codes have been put on notice they face severe bans if they engage in match-fixing.

Queensland Racing Integrity Commission boss Ross Barnett said harness driver Barton Cockburn, who pleaded guilty to match-fixing charges in the Magistrates Court last week, had been warned off for life.

The ban means Cockburn can't attend any racetrack in the world.

"Cockburn's warning off applies to all three codes of racing, thoroughbreds, harness and greyhounds," Barnett said.

"The prosecution of Cockburn should sound a clear warning to anyone wanting to undermine the integrity of racing in Queensland that there will be serious consequences."

Cockburn was one of three people charged with match-fixing offences in April this year after the Racing Crime Squad investigated match fixing allegations in the harness racing industry.

Sadly reports are coming in that the Victorian Police force are about to announce race fixing allegations against four well known participants. This will be another very sad day for the sport if these reports are correct.

Certainly hope Mowie isn't involved in these Police matters.

But thankfully for him don't think bad tipping constitutes a criminal offence.  Smile

I think a case in Qld of race fixing resulted in just a $5000 fine, and a life ban. The law provides for long jail sentences. The life ban from race-courses is more a benefit than a punishment.

15th Dec:


A contested hearing into criminal charges issued against licensed persons Nathan Jack, Amanda Turnbull, Mark Pitt and Lisa Bartley has been held in the Shepparton Magistrates Court over the past three weeks. The case against Amanda Turnbull was dismissed during proceedings.
The magistrate has directed that written submissions be provided by all parties before he delivers his decision. The court has indicated that no decision would be made prior to April 2018.
HRV is unable to make any further comment in relation to the matter.

18th Dec

THE Australian Racing Forensic Laboratory (ARFL) has advised Harness Racing New South Wales (HRNSW) that triamcinolone acetonide has been detected in the blood sample taken from TAIHAPE SUNSET NZ following its win in Race 3, the BAKERS EARTHMOVING WINDMILL HEAT 3 (1720m) at Dubbo on Wednesday November 15, 2017.
The “B” sample has been sent to Racing Analytical Services Limited (RASL) in Victoria for confirmation.
Trainer Ms Amanda Turnbull has been advised that HRNSW will continue its investigation into this sample irregularity and an inquiry will be conducted in due course.
Acting under the provisions of Rule 183A, it has been determined that TAIHAPE SUNSET NZ, the horse subject of the certificate, shall not be nominated or compete in any race until the outcome of an inquiry or investigation. This is effective immediately.

anti inflammatory drugs were legal in the USA.

"Half" our population are taking non steroidal anti inflammatory medication, usually badly monitored and rife with serious side effects..

Looks like the New Zealanders are in a bit of trouble, as well.

Victorian harness racing licenced participants Nathan Jack, Mark Pitt and Lisa Bartley were found guilty of charges under Section 195C of the Crimes Act (1958), which relates to engaging in conduct that corrupts or would corrupt the betting outcome of an event or event contingency.
Mr Jack was found guilty of charges relating to Race 4 at Cobram on 22 June, 2015, and the training arrangements of Airbournemagic leading up to the event.
Mr Pitt was found guilty of a charge relating to the aforementioned race.
Ms Bartley was found guilty of charges relating to the training arrangements of Airbournemagic.
Mr Jack and Mr Pitt were convicted and fined $20,000 and $15,000 respectively.
Ms Bartley was fined $5,000 without a conviction being recorded.
In light of the parties being found guilty Mr Jack, Mr Pitt and Ms Bartley have had all harness racing licences suspended. Horses owned by them are prevented from racing or trialling and all three have been excluded from attending any Victorian racecourse. These restrictions were imposed immediately pending submissions being provided as to why these embargoes should not remain in place until the completion of a HRV investigation.
A final decision with respect to these embargoes is expected to be announced by the HRV Integrity Department by 5pm on 19 September 2018.
As today’s decision of the Magistrates’ Court of Victoria is subject to an appeal period, and all parties being required to appear before HRV for further proceedings, HRV will not make any further comment at this time.
