Victoria Police officers have raided the properties of top Australian harness racing figures over their alleged involvement in a race-fixing scandal.

The Monday morning raids have targeted the racing operations of the Cramp family in Mildura.

Shayne Cramp is one of the state's leading harness racing drivers, while both he and his father Greg also run a major training operation as well.

Fairfax Media was to publish an investigation about the pair's links to suspect betting activities and alleged corruption a fortnight ago, but was requested by police to stall publication.

The Fairfax Media investigation can reveal that Shayne and Greg Cramp are alleged to be involved in a suspected illegal betting syndicate that has been attempting to manipulate the outcome of races for several months.

No other members of their family are alleged to be involved.

Fairfax Media is seeking comment from the Cramp family.
