Following on from the success of Greyhound Racing Victoria’s new video series on coursing that was released a few weeks ago, a second set of videos has just been released in the lead up to the 2017 Waterloo Cup on August 26 + 27.
The second series focuses on:
- Welfare issues and how to deal with them.
- Improving circle-track performances and the struggle for big trainers.
- Prolonging careers and how circle-track stars stack up.
- Advantages of trialling at a coursing track.
Drawing on the knowledge of National Coursing Association of Victoria President, Peter Craig, this series is aimed at encouraging more trainers to take advantage of all that coursing has to offer including educating young greyhounds, improving a greyhound’s fitness and confidence as well as prolonging racing careers.
Victorian coursing’s most lucrative event, the Waterloo Cup, which carries prize money in excess of $25,000, will this year be run at Longwood. It’s not too late to get your greyhounds ready for this time-honoured event, and who knows, the 2017 Waterloo Cup winner might be relaxing in your backyard right now.
The series also includes videos on ‘A trip to Lang Lang for trialling’, ‘Common questions’, ‘First season coursers & samesex races’ and ‘Post-event recovery’.
