The maximum temperature at which greyhound racing or trialling can be conducted has been reset to not higher than 38 degrees Celsius (down from 40 degrees Celsius).
The safety and welfare of greyhounds is of paramount concern for Greyhound Racing Victoria in assessing whether a race meeting or individual races on a program should proceed, be delayed or abandoned in hot weather conditions.
GRV’s Hot Weather Policy, most recently updated last Thursday, sets out the processes, procedures and guidelines to be followed by GRV staff, trainers, handlers, veterinarians and club officials in relation to greyhound race meetings and for Clubs conducting trial sessions in hot weather conditions.
It is important that all concerned regularly acquaint themselves with GRV’s Hot Weather Policy during the hotter months.
