The Harness Racing Victoria (HRV) Stewards advise that with the combining of racing regions, and thereby increased driving and earning capacity, periods of suspension will revert back to being imposed as outlined within the HRV Stewards Minimum Penalty Guidelines.
Suspensions will no longer be imposed on a per meeting basis with the return to periods of suspension being imposed for a specified timeframe e.g. 7 days, 10 days, 3 weeks, 6 weeks etc.
This change will be effective from Monday 25 May 2020.
