Tuesday 19 December twilight meeting at Geelong abandoned

The twilight race meeting scheduled for Geelong on Tuesday 19 December has been abandoned in accordance with GRV’s Hot Weather Policy.

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 or cancel 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.

Trainers with greyhounds drawn to compete at cancelled meetings will still receive Travel and Starter Fees for those meetings.
