It seems the ABC has investigated the complaint by Vílandys and Racing NSW. The end result is the complaints had no basis and it stated the complaint itself contained erroneous statements and claims according to Racenet and Australian.
The question is will Racing NSW and Vílandys go the next step and lodge a complaint with ACMA or lick their wounds?
In my opinion ACMA could find some adverse findings against ABC however they could also criticise Racing NSW and / or Vílandys too if they had made incorrect submissions or statements.
Tough call for Racing NSW and Vílandys. ACMA also take their time too which means a result could also fall in carnival time too.https://www.racenet.com.au/news/abc-probe-clears-abc-report-into-horse-cruelty-20200114
