As reported on The Harness Edge, the Swedish Appeal Commission voided a $15,000 fine and suspension of 30 days against Ake Svanstedt for moving his horse in a race to help another stablemate.race. This despite the fact the driver admitted he did this on live TV immediately after the race. We would love to hear the rationale for doing this.
Apparently Stig H. Johansson did not hear a logical reason. He resigned his seat on the Appeal Commission in protest of this decision.
