Welcome to the August issue of Greyhound Monthly Victoria. This time of the year is usually one of the quieter periods for our sport but much has been happening lately
GRV is committed to providing support to enable participants to achieve positive, effective and productive outcomes.
Australian greyhound racing has this year experienced one of the most contagious strains of canine gastroenteritis in memory.
There continues to be a number of new cases of gastroenteritis reported around mainland Australia including Victoria, however the majority of the initial Victorian cases are now returning back into the racing population.
Victorian trainers should note that Greyhound Racing South Australia (GRSA) has temporarily suspended the taking of nominations for greyhounds from Victorian trainers until further notice. This action is aimed at limiting the spread of the current canine gastroenteritis outbreak.
GRV advises that it is providing each of its racetracks with 12 synthetic covers which are to be used on the decoy lures in the catching pen during a race meeting.
