Regulatory / Stewarding
Stewarding functions transferred from GRNSW to the Commission on 1 July 2018. The Commission has employed experienced stewards to oversee race day activities across greyhound racing in NSW.
The stewards have an important role to ensure that racing is conducted fairly and in accordance with the Greyhound Racing Act 2017 and the Greyhound Racing Rules. Stewards investigate breaches of the racing rules and can apply penalties for non compliance.
Stewards are responsible for maintaining public confidence in greyhound racing and ensuring persons involved act with integrity. They are also responsible for safeguarding the welfare of greyhounds and participants, drug testing and regulating race meetings across NSW
