In light of recent media censorship by Greyhound Racing Victoria, Australian Racing Greyhound has decided it would be timely to review they way we deliver our news, editorial, commentary and race anaylsis.
As a result of that review we are rapidly expanding our contributor and author base so we can source all the greyhound racing news, all the time from anywhere in Australia and New Zealand as it happens.
This week we’ve added three new authors and contributors join the team and we’re excited by the quality and quantity of news we can now service.
Importantly we’ve now added a new category to our news and editorial content : The Armchair Steward.
The Armchair Steward is a greyhound racing insider that heard about Greyhound Racing Victoria’s recent decision to try and hide away Stewards decisions and reports from broad public scrutiny.
Appalled by the fact Greyhound Racing Victoria are the only state in Australia that do not publish their Stewards Inquiry reports on their website, and hearing that they further sought to hide them from view by not supplying this website with the reports either; The Armchair Steward contacted us to anonymously provide stories from time to time that you won’t read in the GRV’s own Adviser or their favoured National Greyhound Form paper.
You’ll know when The Armchair Steward is writing by the bright red graphics we’ve used in this article, and they’ll be offering comment and analysis of Stewards decisions and inquiries, or in some cases lack of them, using their broad reach of contacts nationally.
Anyone can contact The Armchair Steward via their author profile page here and they are encouraging anyone with a hot tip or rumour or unresolved question related to racing integrity or swabbing to get in touch with them.
Stay tuned for some very hot topics!
