The 2012/2013 Australian Greyhound Racing Association’s Group Racing Calendar was released this week.
A total of 100 feature events have been granted Group Status, broken down as 31 Group 1, 32 Group 2 and 37 Group 3 events.
And the old system of sub group races, buts still “black type” races known as Listed Events makes a return after many years off the calendar.
Listed events are classified as those races that carry a first prizemoney total of between $15,000 and $24,999. In this first year of the return of Listed Event races, there will be 13 races series classified as Listed.
AGRA has continued to refine the calendar so as to minimise the clashing of events of similar standard and conditions.
The Group Racing Calendar can be downloaded below.
The specific section on Group events has been expanded this year to include more specific information such as grading and field composition principles.
AGRA Executive Officer, Brenton Scott, said he believed the 2012/2013 Calendar would be well received by Greyhound Racing participants.
