Victorian Greyhound Awards 2019-2020

In 2020 the Victorian Greyhound Awards have gone Virtual.

We premiered the 2020 VGAs on the Greyhound Racing Victoria Facebook page on 30 August 2020, which was a celebration of the 2019/20 Racing Year.

Difficulties relating to the COVID-19 pandemic meant some of GRV’s long-standing annual awards including the Ken Carr Medal, Ned Bryant ‘Silver Fox’ and the Hall of Fame were not presented.

However, we hope you enjoy our selection of videos and articles below, recognising some of the high achievers in our sport during what has been the most challenging of years.
