Thursday 27 August 2015

The Board of Greyhounds Australasia (GA), comprising representation of all controlling authorities in Australia and New Zealand, has approved new and amended national rules (GARs) effective 1 September 2015. Click Here

The objective of these new and amended rules is to further strengthen industry integrity and the welfare of all greyhounds whether racing, being prepared to race or retired.

Participants’ attention is drawn to all new and amended rules but in particular, the introduction of GAR 83 (10) which makes it an offence for a greyhound not to be free of the prohibited substance cobalt above a mass concentration of 100 nanograms per millilitre in a sample of urine.

The GARs help ensure rule uniformity for participants in all jurisdictions throughout Australia and New Zealand and minimise the need for local rules.

All new and amended rule proposals are recommended for approval by the GA Rules and Integrity Committee.
