RULES

  • Qualifying trial form provided by the NZGRA shall be treated as a non-tote run for point's purposes
  • If a greyhound has not had 4 starts, it receives 3 points per start until it has been allocated points for 4 starts
  • Points are allocated on the last 4 starts in the distance that the greyhound was nominated for. Ie sprint 0-600m, Distance 601m & over
  • Australian imports receive points on the same basis. Ie Their last 4 starts in Australia
  • Downgraded greyhounds receive 18 points. Points apply only until greyhound has its 1st downgraded tote start. Points do not apply to Restricted races or greyhounds being nominated out of grade. 18 points still apply when nominations close before first downgraded start
  • A greyhound recorded as fallen has that start disregarded for point's purposes
  • When points are equal the greyhound with the higher points last start, then 2 last start, 3 last etc shall have preference. When two or more greyhounds are still equal and there are not enough remaining places in a field, the clubs selection panel will choose by ballot
  • Restricted races are selected by highest grade but this points system will be used to separate greyhounds of the same grade when required
  • When equal points (12) at distance debut, highest sprint grade gets preference. When sprint grades have the same points scored last start, 2nd last start etc apply
  • When combining grades the highest points scorers in the lower grade to be combined will be placed in the higher grade race.
  • Totalisator points are scored irrespective of the number of starters in the race. Non tote points are scored dependant on starters.
  • Greyhounds nominating at Christchurch that fail to secure a tote race start after two successive nominations when an uncombined race in the greyhound's current grade has been carded shall be guaranteed a tote start when a race for that greyhound's grade is next provided.
  • Tier 2 Races will be considered as an official start (whether it is a Tote or Non-Tote race) and cannot be used as a 'missed start' towards your 2 misses.
  • Group 1 Meetings, Group & Feature races are not included in this policy. These events will be selected strictly on points.
  • The onus shall be on the greyhound's trainer to notify the CGRC manager of the two dates the greyhound has been nominated and failed to gain a start by 10am on the closing date of nominations so the Manager has time to check the eligibility for a start.
