Greyhound Racing NSW has developed a Hot Weather Racing Policy relating to greyhound racing in hot weather conditions. The policy was developed to assist clubs and participants to ensure that greyhounds are properly cared for in circumstances of hot weather conditions.
The policy also outlines when a greyhound can be scratched without penalty in the event of hot weather.

In addition, Greyhound Racing NSW has released a Heat Stress Veterinary Fact Sheet to inform owners and trainers on how to minimise the chances of their greyhounds from developing heat stress.
The Fact Sheet gives tips on what owners and trainers can do when they are travelling or racing their greyhounds on hot days as well as providing advice on how to spot if a greyhound is affected by heat stress.

In coming weeks GRNSW will move to grading meetings on its new OzChase system. To coincide with this change GRNSW is moving to one combined NSW Grading Policy, rather than maintaining separate TAB and Non-TAB policies. Feedback on the changes, particularly as they relate to Non-TAB grading, is now called for.
