Chairman’s Update February 2019  

Hi Everyone

  • The Extended lure arm trial will commence from 12 March 2019. Trials on the race day lure will commence Noon to about 1.15pm then Free extended arm trials from 1.15pm to 2pm. The intention is to commence racing with the extended arm from May 2019 which will give us time to iron out any issue and arrange for additional lure carriage to be manufactured.   

  • A safety barrier extension at the pull up area has been booked in but has been delayed as the contractor is fully booked.

  • Tuesday race programmes will allow us to card up to 15 races including maiden 295m events. 9 additional races are available nationally each week.

  • The turf build up on the inside of the drainage ditch has been removed.  This will be carried out more frequently in the future to avoid any possible drainage issues.

  • Tony is working with Website personnel from the Racing Board to update our website to make it more user friendly and informative.

  • We plan to hold a quiz night at Spectator’s on Saturday 13 April 7pm as a social event. Look out for details. 

    Regards Chris Earl

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.
