Racing at Hatrick indefinitely suspended

23 September 2021

Greyhound Racing New Zealand (GRNZ) has announced that racing at Hatrick Raceway is indefinitely suspended, commencing immediately.

GRNZ has made this decision in consultation with the Racing Integrity Board, amid ongoing safety concerns around the Wanganui track.

“The health and welfare of our greyhounds is paramount,” said Glenda Hughes, CEO GRNZ.

An independent assessment and review of the Wanganui track will be urgently conducted.

“We will use the findings of the assessment to implement the changes necessary to ensure that the track provides consistently safe footing for our greyhounds,” added Hughes.

GRNZ will advise participants of changes to upcoming race schedules as soon as these schedules are confirmed.
