Hobart To Host National Sprint And Distance Championships

Hobart Greyhound Racing Club (HGRC) is set to play host to the National Sprint and Distance Championship Titles in August.

It will be the first time Hobart has held the Championships in 25 years.

The city was home to the 1987 edition of the National Sprint and Distance Championship Titles, when Freemantle Echo won the feature sprint race ahead of Tasmania’s best hope True Vintage.

Tasmania will be looking for the home side advantage when the race is run on August 25, 2012, with the state’s last winner coming back in 1984.

Hobart Greyhound Racing’s chaimran Denise Fysh is confident that the race series will be a success.

“This is a very exciting time for the HGRC,” Fysh said.

“It’s great to have the Nationals back in Hobart and to showcase our great new track and facilities to a national audience.”

The National Sprint and Distance Championship Titles’ main two races are The Sprint and the Distance Finals, which are both worth $75,000 to the winners and classified as Group 1 events.
