Maitland to Receive Track Upgrade

Media Release: GRNSW

The Board of Greyhound Racing NSW has approved $59,000 in funding for the installation of a transition turn at the Maitland greyhound racing track.

Interference at the first turn has been a concern at Maitland since its conversion to loam and the proposed works should go a long way to reducing that interference and improving the quality of racing at the venue.

“The upgrade of the Maitland track with a transition turn, which has been proven at many race tracks, will make racing at the venue safer for greyhounds and more consistent for punters,” said GRNSW Chief Executive Brent Hogan.
