Tasracing has served formal Notices to racing industry participants named in the Murrihy Report into Tasmanian Harness Racing of an immediate “warning off” from all venues controlled by Tasracing in Tasmania.

Tasracing CEO Andrew Jenkins said the serving of the Notices commenced late Thursday (1 February).

“Tasracing is satisfied it has the grounds on which to make this decision under the Racing Regulation Act 2004, based on the serious allegations and subsequent findings made by Mr Murrihy and detailed in his report into the handling of matters by the Office of Racing Integrity,” he said.

“The named participants have a show cause period to provide evidence why the Notice should be rescinded.”
