10 April, 2017 – HRV Integrity Department using drone technology
Harness Racing Victoria (HRV) Integrity Department advises that the services of unmanned Aerial Vehicles (drones) have recently been utilised as part of investigations into suspected race day administration and treatment.
HRV engaged the services of a Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) approved external private company considered industry leaders in this area.
HRV Integrity Department will continue to use drones in future investigations to detect trainers engaging in race day administration or treatment. These measures are paramount to the integrity of harness racing and ensuring a level playing field.
The HRV Integrity Department is committed to ensuring such offences are disrupted and when detected, evidence is gathered against those responsible who are breaching the Australian Harness Racing Rules (AHRR).
