As the 2019-20 financial year ends, I would like to take this opportunity to update you all on how our sport has been travelling over the past 12 months.
I am very pleased to report that greyhound racing continues to perform strongly in Victoria and that we have been able to maintain, and even add to, our regular racing calendar, which is indeed a privilege for which we should all be collectively grateful.
GRV’s paramount responsibility is the health, safety and welfare of all Victorian participants and their greyhounds and of our clubs and our staff. However, we also recognise that greyhound racing provides jobs, income and markets for thousands of people and many businesses across the State.
I’d like to congratulate Fernando’s Riot and Anthony Azzopardi on a great run at the Australian Cup last Sunday. And the team at The Meadows once again did a wonderful job of presenting one of the peak events in Australia’s greyhound racing calendar.
