Straight Track EOI Process Underway
Greyhound Racing NSW (GRNSW) has called for expressions of interest from GRNSW registered clubs to conduct straight track race meetings.
The introduction of straight track racing is seen as a key welfare initiative for GRNSW in its objective to reduce racing-related injuries and improve welfare outcomes for racing greyhounds.
Developing purpose-built straight tracks was also a key recommendation of the University of Technology Sydney's report into greyhound race track design.
Under the terms of the expressions of interest, the successful applicant would stage 26 TAB meetings on a straight track in the initial 12-month period.
Applicants will be evaluated based on a range of guidelines including racing infrastructure, as well as welfare and integrity capabilities.
The deadline for expressions of interest closes on 17 November.
Following the deadline for the lodgement of expressions of interest, GRNSW will conduct an evaluation process to determine the most appropriate applicant to undertake the allocated straight track race meetings.
