Harness race-fixing scandal not surprising - punter

From Morning Report, 6:19 am on 7 September 2018

A punter at a North Island race meet last night says he's not that surprised by the unprecedented investigation into race-fixing in harness racing. Cambridge Raceway held its first race meeting since the industry hit the headlines this week. Ten people including top industry figures have been charged with race-fixing and possession and supply of drugs, after a 17 month-long police investigation. Race 11 in Nelson on June 8 is one of the races at the centre of the inquiry. Punter Bruce Mills told RNZ reporter Anneke Smith the police raids and investigation - dubbed Operation Inca - won't put him off having a flutter.
