The Bendigo Greyhound Racing Association is excited to receive confirmation of a permanent second race meeting each week commencing December.
Since the new Bendigo venue was unveiled the Club has received unprecedented support from trainers by way of nomination and trial demand and the permanent tier 3 meeting will provide the participants the additional meeting necessary to meet the demand for racing in the region.
Initially the new Tuesday meeting was to commence in July 2013 however GRV have successfully negotiated the introduction of the meeting from December and the Club is extremely appreciative of the efforts of GRV and Sky Racing to have the meeting introduced earlier. “With nominations regularly exceeding 250 for the tier 3 meetings and 200 for the full stake meetings the permanent second meeting at both Bendigo and Ballarat will provide the necessary racing options for the participants in the region,” said BGRA General Manager Troy Harley.
“The support for the new track has been overwhelming and the BGRA is grateful for the efforts of GRV to be granted an additional race meeting that will allow the Club to maintain a professional structure and provide for the needs of its members and the participants of the region” added Harley.
The new meetings will commence from Tuesday December 4 and be conducted as an early afternoon/twilight meeting and will be conducted as Tier 3 meetings with the full stake meeting to be conducted weekly in the Friday twilight schedule.
