Grading Changes To Be Implemented

Greyhound Racing Victoria (GRV) recently announced a number of Board-approved enhancements to racing and grading. The first stage of the rollout of these changes will happen Tuesday 3 June in the afternoon and will come into effect this Wednesday 4 June.

The five changes that will be implemented this week are:

1.    Special Event/Group Grading Policy
2.    Weighted Points Table:- Race Types and Ranking Points allocated
3.    Upgrading: 10 Full Stakes Wins
4.    Grading Guideline 1.3: 6 greyhound Fields 595m plus Metro Category 1
5.    Novice Grading outlined and implemented

Details of each change:

GROUP RACE / SPECIAL EVENT GRADING
For all Group Races and Special Events higher graded dogs (Grades 1-3) will be included first, with the remaining Grade 4 and Grade 5 greyhounds selected based on their current ranking. Clubs will now select which ‘Selection method’ is to be applied – ‘Seeded/Guarded/Random’ or ‘Random/Guarded’
