Capalaba Greyhound Racing Re-Opens After Floods

Capalaba Greyhound Racing Club is ready to get back in action after spending the past three months recovering from flooding earlier in the year.

The club was flooded in January and will have its first race meet since opening its doors once again next Saturday April 21, 2012.

Racing Queensland has now taken over the running of Capalaba Greyhound Racing Club and expects the night to be full of top quality racing.

Club president Alec Stevens believes the opening night will be the beginning of an exciting season of greyhound racing.

“We have been trialling the track, which has dried out and is close to perfect,” Mr Stevens said.

“We expect a fairly big crowd on Saturday because all our facilities have now been refurbished,” he said.

Those facilities include the club house, refrigeration facilities and the track itself.

In other greyhound racing news, Peggy May has taken out the 2012 Bendigo Cup for her trainer Jason Thompson at Bendigo.

Thompson was ecstatic with the result after the race and was full of praise for the race track.

“She’s (Peggy May) a very good girl, she’s been in a couple of finals and it’s great that she has now cracked one,” Thompson said.

“I don’t think you will get a track anywhere else in the world where every greyhound has a chance to win like this one.

“It’s a fantastic set-up here I can’t commend the club enough.”
