From Morning Report, 7:25 am on 5 September 2018

One of the high-profile targets of a race-fixing investigation in the harness industry has denied any wrongdoing. Police say arrests could be made as soon as today 24 hours after they raided stables at 10 properties from Invercargill to Manawatu. Some industry players say the 18-month-investigation into race fixing is a storm in a teacup. But one commentator says if the allegations are true it would be the biggest scandal to hit the sport.
