Tickets can be bought the same as normally for Monday trials, either booked and paid for by phone or at the trials prior to 6.30pm. Running order for follow on trials will be 600m, 515m, 400m and then 272m. Cost of the follow on trials will be $15.00. We will also be conducting a review of the Tuesday trial session shortly. ...

Attention trainers, a hearing aid was found near the 515m boxes at The Gardens tonight. If you're the owner, you can contact The Gardens on 49515842 after 9.00am Monday.
Yesterday saw the running of our latest Ladbrokes Monthly bonus race, a 515m maiden won very impressively by the Peter Lagogiane trained Knighthood. Until the heats the week before, the red fawn son of Barcia Bale was possibly the country's best maiden having been runner up to Feral Franky throughout the Richmond maiden series in June. He soon shook off the tag last Friday in the heats where he won in a very impressive 29.66 seconds, only to really put the foot down yesterday in running 29.36 seconds. Surprisingly, this was not the quickest time of the day. That honour also went one of Pete's charges in last year's Million Dollar Chase winner Mystic Riot who relished the drop in grade to just edge out the kennel mate for time honours with a fast run of 29.33 seconds. No doubt Pete will be back up the highway to The Gardens in August to contest The Black Top and other feature races, not to mention this year's Million Dollar Chase. Well done to Pete and his team. ... See more
Attention Trainers. We are pleased to announce that our new "empty-out" area has been completed and is available for use today, directly outside the rear door of our kennel block. It has a nice white fence around it. ... See more
Thank you to all who attended yesterday's private trial session. Barring a couple of small teething problems, the wide opinion was it was one of the smoothest sessions we've ever had. We ran very close to time all morning and we are hoping to improve on-time running again next week. Our primary aim is to ensure your booked time ends up being the actual time that your trial runs. This is to the benefit of ALL concerned, and not just the "loudest" ones who feel that our new system does not suit them. Any action that interferes with this aim just can't be accommodated. If you are late you will miss out. Next week will be the same conditions. Session is 7am to 11am. No extension until we are fully booked. Booking again from 9am Monday. The office staff will resist answering the phone until 1 millisecond past 9am. There is an opportunity to book Monday evening if you can get through to the trial office, but remember they are busy in there for Monday night trials, and they may not be able to answer the phone all the time. You can still book early Tuesday morning if we have spots left. ... See more
Our new Tuesday trial booking system has worked quite well today. You can still call the club and book today as staff are still here for Monday night trials, or you can also book tomorrow. We still have spots available between 7:12am and 7:21am. Also 7:33am to 7:54am, and a few between 8:am and 8:42am. We will be finishing up around 11am tomorrow, unless these spots are filled and then we may open up slots for the following hours. ... See more
Reminder to all. If you want to book a private trial for tomorrow please call the office on 49515842 today to secure your spot! Still plenty of spots available between 7am and 9am. So far the feedback about our new system has been good. ... See more
Further to the previous post, Tuesday trials will now start at 7am sharp, unless there is an unscheduled event causing a delay. 7am is the time the first trial begins.
Attention owners and trainers. The club has been looking into introducing an online booking system for Tuesday trials for some time. After recent helpful feedback from a number of trainers, the club has now decided to change the current procedures around Tuesday private trials immediately, with a view to implementing the online system soon. As such here are the new arrangements that will apply from next Tuesday 23rd July. These procedures will be strictly enforced, and the online system will operate in a similar manner. There will no longer be permanent bookings. Bookings for Tuesday private trials can be made by phone on 02 49 515842 from 9am to 3pm on the preceding Monday. No bookings before 9am on the Monday! Payment MUST be made at the time of booking to secure your spot. You can only cancel and get a refund if you also cancel on the Monday. No refunds if you cancel on the Tuesday. All trainers are required to arrange a catcher for all trials. The semaphore board will remain OFF for all trials. NO exceptions! It is the trainers responsibility to collect the ticket that is printed after each trial. All trainers must check into the main office at least 10 minutes before their scheduled trial so as to collect a numbered trial ticket. Don't be late! Ticket is to be presented to track staff when you trial. This is to keep each preceding trial PRIVATE! There will be no refunds unless we cancel the entire trial session, or unless your trial is delayed for more than 4 hours. In the the event of a delayed start due to inclement weather (ie: fog), then all trials will be pushed back, however the booked sequence will remain the same and there will be no changes in the queue UNLESS we have an empty spot. We will endeavor to put up a post here on a Monday night showing any vacant spots and bookings can still be made on the Tuesday for a trial on that day. Once again, payment must be made at the time of booking. There will be no cash handled trackside. All bookings MUST go through the office. Thanks again to trainers for providing input into helping the club come up with this new system. ... See more

As you may be aware, the niece of popular Tamworth greyhound people Tony & Robyn Atkins had her life shattered when 3 of her children lost their life in a tragic house fire at Singleton last week. Local trainer Margaret Bright has begun a fundraiser which The Gardens are honored to assist with. Still in the early stages, this will consist of raffles, donations and possibly an auction. As well as the loss of 3 children, the family also lost everything they owned in the fire so we are looking for anything which may help them to rebuild their lives. Newcastle Greyhounds would like to kick this off with a donation of $2000.00 and would encourage everyone to contribute anything you can to help this young family attempt to recover from this tragic event. We will continue to keep all updated as we have more information. Thank you. ... See more

Tonight saw the running of our latest Ladbrokes Monthly bonus race, a 600m Non Graded, won very convincingly by That's Lil Vicki. Trained by master mentor Dave Irwin at Warragai Creek on the far North coast, the daughter of Dyna Double One took her overall record to a very impressive 17 wins and 3 placing from only 28 starts. Tonight was the second time Dave made the 5 hour road trip in 8 days as last Friday he also won what turned out to be a prelude for tonight's race. Time for tonight's race was a quick 34.44 secs compared to last week's 34.96 secs. Owned by the Central Coast Butler Butler syndicate That's Lil Vicki is their first foray into greyhound racing and were all trackside tonight to see the win. Congratulations to all concerned. ...

The Raelee Shearer trained Magic Mustang won race 6 today named the "HAPPY RETIREMENT RUSTY MEMORIES STAKE". The race was in honour of the great old campaigner who recently retired due to injury. In 89 starts Rusty won 29 races and also collected another 24 place cheques with over $66k in career prize money winning races from every box. Trained by Brandy Hill conditioner Mark Davidson for the Punters HQ Syndicate, he won 14 races at The Gardens including times of 22.70, 29.66 and 34.83 over each distance. The red brindle son of Barcia Bale & Midnight Capers was runner up in last year's Gardens GOTY. A presentation to the winning connections was made by Marks wife Mel after the race.
