The twilight race meeting scheduled for Bendigo on Friday 22 January has been transferred to morning on the same day due to predicted hot weather conditions.
This decision was made following consultation between Greyhound Racing Victoria (GRV) and the Bendigo Greyhound Racing Association as a result of the abandonment of Wednesday’s Bendigo meeting due to the raceday kennels reaching over 26 degrees.
The safety and welfare of greyhounds is of paramount concern for GRV in assessing whether a race meeting or individual races on a program should proceed, be delayed or abandoned in hot weather conditions.
Decisions to transfer meetings are made after careful consideration and consultation with the weather bureau and also take into account the predicted temperature for travel times to and from the venue as well as at the track.
