The Gardens Meetings Relocated
GRNSW wishes to advise participants that trials at The Gardens today have been cancelled, and meetings scheduled for this week have been rescheduled to new locations.
The Gardens Friday meeting has been moved to Gosford while the Saturday meeting has been moved to Maitland.
Trainers will need to renominate their greyhounds at these venues, with nominations for the Gosford Friday and Maitland Saturday meetings closing at 9 am Tuesday 9 January 2018.
The decision to relocate these meetings has been made in conjunction with The Gardens club, with the welfare of the greyhounds the priority.
The Gardens Club President Brett Lazzarini has supported the decision stating: “The focus is on the welfare of the greyhounds and at this point in time we have agreed that the surface is substandard. We are committed to working in tandem with GRNSW to alleviate the issue.”
The track requires surface consolidation and has been deemed unfit for racing in its present state.
GRNSW apologises for the inconvenience this may cause to participants and is working with The Gardens to address the problem so that racing can recommence at the venue as soon as possible.
