A Victorian harness driver and trainer has been handed an eight year ban for race fixing and interfering with a post-race blood test.

Scott Dyer was penalised for eight years for race rigging and endeavoring to interfere with the result of a blood test.

The HRV RAD Board heard submissions on penalty from Adrian Anderson, representing HRV, and Joe Beder, representing Mr Dyer.

In determining penalty the HRV RAD Board considered the following:

  • The very serious nature of the charges which included race rigging and endeavoring to interfere with the result of a blood test.
  • The primary purpose of the rules of harness racing is to protect the integrity of the harness racing industry
  • Mr Dyers corrupt actions struck at the very heart of the integrity of the harness racing industry
  • Specific deterrence and general deterrence
  • The Board took into account the lesser role played by Mr Dyer compared to his co-accused, Larry Eastman, who was disqualified for 16 years
  • The mental health issues suffered by Mr Dyer which pre-dated and post-dated the offences before the board
  • Mr Dyers plea of guilty and his good character references Penalty After taking these factors into account, the HRV RAD Board issued a aggregate penalty of 8 years disqualification back dated to commence on 25 June 2018, the date Mr Dyer was stood down by HRV Stewards.
