An impressive 133 nominations were received for last Sunday’s opening to the coursing season at Benalla. NCA Secretary, Sue Delaney said that more people are becoming aware of the benefits that coursing offers.
“The National Coursing Association of Victoria is thrilled with nominations received so far this year, including Benalla last Sunday where the preference was given to maiden greyhounds. The day was most successful with very competitive young greyhounds taking up the coursing challenge,” she said.
“We now travel to the south-east of Melbourne to the sleepy township of Lang Lang with the same concept, as preference will again be given to maiden greyhounds.”
Note: In coursing, maiden greyhounds are those that haven’t won a coursing event before, regardless of what they have achieved on the circle (TAB tracks), with maiden males and females generally racing against their own sex.
Nominations for Sunday’s Lang Lang meeting close at 8.30am on Thursday via FastTrack. First Course at 10.00 am.
