Stipendiary Stewards Report


Palmerston North Greyhound Racing Club

Manawatu Raceway ON MONDAY 11 Feb 2019

Weather: Fine
Track: Good The track was presented in good order and the meeting proceeded smoothly apart from the fact that some of the races were started behind the advertised start times.
Scales: Checked and correct
Health and Safety comment: Nil

Judicial report: ASK KING JEFF which was a late scratching at Wanganui on 08.02.19 when found to be suffering from kennel cough, was represented on 09.02.19. On that occasion, ASK KING JEFF was again examined by the Vet who found no evidence of kennel cough and under Rules 56.5 & 56.6 the original stand down was rescinded and the dog was subsequently cleared to continue with his racing program. The race program fell behind during the day due to the tight timetable between races and also the extra heat on the day which required the attendants to spend extra time attending to the dogs health interests following each race. BIGTIME LEROY was trialed before the race meeting and suffered a gastric dilation and was euthanased by the Vet.
