GWIC updates / Odds and evens boxing sequence returns on 13 July 2020

Greyhound Racing NSW (GRNSW) and the Greyhound Welfare & Integrity Commission (GWIC) have today announced that as from tomorrow, Monday 13 July 2020, the boxing sequence for the start of all races across NSW will return to the previous boxing sequence of two lines starting with the first line of all odd numbers and the second line of all even numbers.

This decision has been made after a review of the strict biosecurity protocols implemented four months ago. The biosecurity protocols were introduced to deal with the COVID-19 outbreak and to ensure that greyhound racing could continue in a safe environment.

The biosecurity protocols will continue to be implemented at all tracks. This includes taking the temperature of everyone entering all racecourses.

Social distancing will still be enforced at all times including at the starting boxes.

GRNSW and GWIC would like to recognise all clubs and participants who have demonstrated their serious commitment to the necessary biosecurity measures which has allowed racing to safely continue.
