In a shock move three members of South Australian Harness Racing Club have resigned from the board.
As of last week brothers Bruce and Murray Evans along with Colin Mathews have decided to stand down.
The board under new president Richard Miller was only elected earlier this month, Miller replaced Ms Lyn Tester who lost her seat on the board.
With the three committee members standing down it only leaves Miller, vice president Geoff Easom and committee members Tony Copeland, Ray Holberton, Malcolm Langford.
Mark Dennis walks in twice.

Holberton then backed the Bettors Delight 5 year old up on Monday and dispite drawing the back line and working to the breeze in the middle stages Harding said go at the 400 meter mark and he raced past a smart mare in Closure to win untouched by 20 meters.
