Code Support Line
The objective of GRV is to support participants to better understand their obligations and responsibilities under the Victorian Government’s Code of Practice for the Keeping of Racing Greyhounds. To that end, we have established a Code Support Line.

Keeping Greyhound Records now even easier!
A Greyhound Record is created in FastTrack for all greyhounds bred in Victoria, and can be accessed from your MyDogs page once a greyhound has been added to your FastTrack kennel (Kennel Return). To use Greyhound Record on FastTrack, log in to your account at fasttrack.grv.org.au.
Some participants choose to keep these health and veterinary treatment records on paper, so to make this process more straightforward, GRV has now made available a simplified manual template that participants can use, along with a handy reference table of Injury, Illness and Health Management event types, locations and treatments that matches the options in FastTrack.
