A MESSAGE FROM NSW GBOTA GENERAL MANAGER, STEVE NOYCE

Please accept my sincere apologies for the late notice provided on Wednesday regarding the cancellation of trials after the last race.

 At the current time, we are instructed by GWIC to maintain an isolated kennel block at Wentworth Park on race nights. This requirement is in place to cover if a greyhound displays vomiting or diarrhea after being kennelled for racing. The greyhound would be removed from their kennel block and placed in the isolated kennel block.

 As a result of this requirement, we are naturally not able to offer kennelling for dogs that are to be trailed after the last race on race nights.

To support participants wanting to trial this Saturday, 21 March, you will need to keep your greyhound in your air-conditioned vehicle or arrange to bring your greyhounds to the track towards the end of the race meeting. Following the issues on Wednesday night, as a special matter you will be able to trial on Saturday night even if you don’t have a greyhound racing at the meeting.

NB! For trials after the last race you must purchase a trial ticket at the race night office BEFORE Race 8. 

Please be assured that everyone at the GBOTA is totally committed to best practices to ensure we continue to race and to achieve the best outcomes for participants and our great industry.

 Again we need to stress that if you are feeling unwell with flu or cold-like symptoms, including sore throat, fever, cough or shortness of breath please do NOT come to Wentworth Park for the race meeting or the trials.

If you require additional information or have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me on 0402 428 117.
