Greyhound racing

GRNSW have released a number of changes to the racing calendar most to accomodate the shutdown of racing at Tamworth and Armidale, plus extra meetings for Wentworth Park; and a grading change to suit the short coursers.

Tamworth & Armidale meetings moved

  • The dog meeting scheduled for Tamworth on Saturday 8th December will be moved to Moree and run as a “C” graded meeting.
  • The meeting scheduled for Armidale on Saturday 15th December is now to be run at Muswellbrook on Sunday 16th December with standard prizemoney.

Grading policy changes for Wentworth Park nominations/h2>

  • The previous clause which stated that a greyhound had to have won at least one race greater than 400m to be eligible to be nominated for Wentworth Park has been removed.
    • Non TAB meeting scratching to GRNSW only

      • All scratching’s for non-TAB meetings after Saturday 8th December need to be directed to the GRNSW scratching phone line: 1300 797 538. Local greyhound race clubs will no longer take scratchings.
