The sport of greyhound racing raised $10,000 for struggling Aussie farmers on Thursday with a brand new campaign supporting Rural Aid’s ‘Buy a Bale’ program.
For every greyhound that won wearing the yellow number five rug on the night at Albion Park, Angle Park, Dapto, Hobart, Mandurah and Sandown, $1000 was donated to ‘Buy a Bale’, which delivers hay and other essential items to farmers who have little or no feed left for their cattle.
A total of eight greyhounds won in the yellow rug across the six race meetings, including a nation-wide high three at Sandown, while Greyhound Clubs Australia donated $2000 to the cause which took the total up to $10,000.
The three Sandown Park winners in yellow were:
– Orson Allen (Correy Grenfell)
– Blackjack Neo (Robert Neocleous)
– Swift Rain (Steven White)
