  1. 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
  2. Very sorry to hear of the passing of one of the greatest trainers I have ever met. Ray Adcock passed away last night. R.I.P Ray it was an honor knowing you & being the starter when you had dogs racing in Cambridge & Auckland.
  3. There is a dress code for handlers which is black & white but there is no dress code for starters. As long as they don't wear anything that is offensive & look respectable they are allowed to wear what they want. During the summer I wear dress shorts when doing the starting as it gets very hot & with the gaps you don't get time to get a drink.
  4. Your welcome Jape. All I did was copy & paste the link from the website that was posted in 1 of the greyhound groups I'm in
  5. Is this the link your looking for?
  6. According to the GRNZ website kennel cough is going around in the CD at the moment. His Kennels may have it & be on lockdown.
  7. Last Saturday, Gordon sadly lost his more than a year long battle with cancer. Our sincere condolences to his wife Margaret and family. His was long term involvement in our code as a widely respected owner, breeder and trainer. From his Dury based Jetsun kennels, he successfully bred and raced his Jetsun dogs at our northern venues, past and present for over three decades. A service to farewell Gordon will be held at the Fountain Funeral Chapel, Elliott Street, Papakura, on Wednesday 18th November at 2.00pm.
  8. This explains the latest 1 that was abandond
  9. I wonder if the person who thought of this idea realizes that there is a delay from when they jump on TV to when they really jump at the track. By the time it gets to the studio 3 seconds has already passed & then it's another 3seconds for it to get to the public watching it on TV.
  10. A beautiful tribute to Steve on the GRNZ website. R.I.P Steve you will be missed by us all.
  11. From what I hear it's going to be 2 guys that don't like the greyhounds. Aaron & George.
  12. At Manukau the Judge & sometimes the lure-driver tells the starter when to box. At Cambridge they are told when to box by a set of lights which is controlled by the judge. (Red for the 1minute call & Orange for when to load)
  13. Rest In Peace my friend. You & Linda trained some really good dogs over the years including the father to my girl when she was racing (Chris' Pride). Your comments & friendly banter will be missed on here.
