Statement From Minister For Racing

Jane Howlett, Minister for Racing

Minister for Racing, Jane Howlett, said that she welcomed yesterday’s decision by the Court regarding Ben Yole and three other individuals.

“I love Tasmania’s racing industry, and as Minister I am determined to do what I can to help get it back on track”, Ms Howlett said.

“This includes stamping out any alleged misbehaviour, which is unfortunately tainting the wider industry.

“I strongly encourage Tasracing to take any and all actions they can in this regard.”

Ms Howlett said that she had also had discussions with Tasracing about what further actions they could take to improve the integrity of Tasmania’s harness racing sector.
