Horse racing scandal: Media barred from Addington Raceway

From Morning Report, 6:43 am on 10 September 2018

Media were barred from working inside a Christchurch raceway on Friday night - at what was the second meeting to be held since a race-fixing investigation launched last week. Eleven people have been arrested and charged with a raft of offences, including race-fixing, as part of Operation Inca. The ITM Daffodil Race Night at the Addington Raceway was the first meeting in the South Island since the scandal surfaced. Most of the trainers and drivers charged so far are from the Canterbury region. RNZ reporter Dan Dalgety spoke to punters outside the grounds, asking them how much the investigation has affected the industry.
