The Michigan Gaming Control Board is seeking witnesses to what it alleges is a conspiracy among 30 drivers, trainers, owners and gamblers to fix races at the state's three pari-mutuel harness racing tracks.
A spokesman for the Board told the Detroit Free Press that the investigation spans the past year, and also involves the cooperation of the Ontario Racing Commission and the racetracks.
Without identifying anyone, the newspaper reported that the Michigan State Police served warrants and searched three Michigan homes on Thursday.
The Boardsays anyone with information should call (517) 241-1426 or its anonymous tip line at (888) 314-2682, or call the Michigan State Police at (517) 336-3437.
