Greyhound Racing under Alert Level 2

Two significant changes to Greyhound Racing are proposed as the country moves to Alert Level 2 on Thursday 14 May.
The first is the return of split-kennelling to Addington, Palmerston North and Wanganui and the second is the return to "normal" boxing with two lines of four dogs, although with the 2nd line allowing 2m spacing so that the front line handlers can vacate easily.
Race meetings will continue to operate "behind closed doors" with no public allowed, at least for the current week.  With bars allowed to open from next week this situation will be revisited.
Nominations will continue to be restricted to within Regions, ie North to North, CD to CD and Canterbury to Addington.  Not only is this to prevent Covid-19 contact tracing closing down two regions, but it is also in response to the ongoing threat of the vomiting bug being present in the general dog population.  If it does strike the greyhound population again, we do not want it to affect more than one region.
Connections will continue to hold on to their Greyhound ID Weight Cards.
Other on-course businesses such as Spectators at Addington and the Cambridge Turf Bar will be making their own decisions in regard to opening.  Please keep in contact with your club for updates.
