Richard Brankley

Following the official announcement from SIS that Richard Brankley has been appointed as Head of Greyhound Operations, the former Ladbrokes Head of Stadia has hinted at further morning meetings for the SIS tracks.

Harlow will begin staging early Saturday morning meetings from November 17 with 10 race cards commencing at 8.12am. They will supplement the regular early starts at Henlow on Tuesdays and Fridays.

Brankley, who returned to working under former Ladbrokes boss Gordon Bissett (SIS Greyhound Operations Manager) nine weeks ago said: “The races will be broadcast to our UK retail and overseas customers. I can confirm there will be additional morning meetings in the near future”

The Star understands that by December, SIS will be broadcasting an early morning greyhound meeting every day from Monday to Saturday.
