19.37 Crayford – Tuesday 26th March 2024
Having seen the video clip of the greyhound appearing to vomit on parade, the greyhound should have been returned to the paddock to be assessed by the Veterinary Surgeon on duty. The welfare of the greyhounds running at our tracks is of paramount importance.
The reasons why the correct procedure was not followed are being investigated internally and we will take the necessary steps to ensure that the correct procedures are followed from now on. We will also be cooperating fully with the GBGB Investigation.
The greyhound was checked by the Veterinary Surgeon after the race in question and did not show any signs of illness. A urine sample was taken from the greyhound and sent for analysis.
