Meritorious Service Award Annulled

06 February 2018

The Harness Racing Australia (HRA) Honours Committee today approved a recommendation to annul the Meritorious Service Award of Mr Larry Eastman.

Mr Eastman was presented the prestigious national award in 2015, but having been found guilty of numerous corrupt conduct charges in the Bendigo Magistrates Court and sentenced late last month, he was no longer considered suitable to sit alongside the names of previous or future award recipients.
