Working despite ban


A champion harness racing driver has been caught working with horses despite a two-year ban. Matt Anderson, a former New Zealand representa­tive and national premiershi­pwinning driver, was disqualifi­ed from working with harness horses in August last year after conviction­s for assaulting and choking a woman. Racing Integrity Unit staff found Anderson, 28, helping to train horses on Tuesday at a training base in Rangiora run by veteran trainer Phil Burrows. When approached yesterday, , he said he had nothing to say.
