Racing Queensland Gives Nod To Extra Albion Park Greyhounds Racing Wednesday & Sunday
Written By Kevin Pitstock, Editor Australian Racing Greyhound Friday 26th October 2012
The Brisbane Club (BGRC) will host two extra races at their weekly Wednesday and Sunday meetings to accommodate the excess of nominations.
The extra races will add more than $70,000 to the prizemoney pool and will complement the addition of the fortnightly Saturday night non-TAB meetings at Ipswich due to commence in early November.
Racing Queensland chairman Kevin Dixon said the board was quick to vote on the decision.
â€śThe industry currently has a significant surplus of greyhounds that cannot all be placed in races,â€ť he said.
â€śThis decision affords owners and trainers the opportunity to nominate their greyhounds for extra races, and enable them to compete where they might not have been able to in the past.â€ť
