South Australian greyhound racing cancelled for 7 days over COVID

As lockdowns spread almost as fast as the virus itself Australian greyhound racing has managed to battle on, but the latest South Australian emergency lockdown has forced the cancellation of all greyhound racing in the state.

In a very short statement a Greyhound Racing South () spokesperson said that:

GRSA wishes to advise that given the latest COVID-19 Direction (The Emergency Management (Activities – Associated Direction No 2) (COVID-19) Direction 2021) from South Australian Government, greyhound racing will not continue during the 7-day SA COVID-19 lockdown that commenced tonight at 6pm.

This includes racing and (with trials to be confirmed) until the scheduled end of lockdown on Tuesday 27th July at 6pm, subject to Government direction. Talks between the racing codes and Government were unable to secure a favourable outcome.
