According to a report, a computer hacker was successful in scratching a trotter from a scheduled race, but the horse has since been cleared to compete.

A story by The Herald Sun explains that a hacker broke into the system of Harness Racing Victoria on Thursday, May 5 and at 12:34 p.m. scratched gelding Stoned I Am from competing in a race at Tabcorp Park.
