TAB Great Chase races to the finish line at The Meadows

The Meadows Greyhound Racing Association will put on a great day of racing in support of disability and aged care organisations when it hosts the TAB Great Chase Grand Final on Wednesday, 25 October.

The Grand Final wraps up this unique series of racing and community events.

Heats have been spread across 13 Victorian racing clubs which also host community events for local disability and aged care organisations. The lucrative $230,000 series is open to Victorian bred and trained greyhounds with one to five wins.

About 400 guests from disability and aged care organisations will be at The Meadows to watch eight greyhounds battle it out for the $47,000 first prize. Eight randomly selected groups will be assigned greyhounds to cheer on for a share in $24,000 in prizemoney. The group that draws the winning dog will take home $10,000 to bolster activities and programs for their clients.

This year 1440 guests from 135 organisations have attended TAB Great Chase events at local clubs to enjoy the racing, entertainment, meals and giveaways and to share in cash prizes. Since 2003, GRV has donated more than $500,000 to participating organisations through the series, which is organised in partnership with Tabcorp.
