Transfer of Race Meetings in October

Updated: 21st Sep, 2017

Four meetings scheduled for The Gardens in October will be transferred to Richmond and Gosford to allow for the track surface and base at The Gardens to undergo a complete redevelopment.

Work to be undertaken at The Gardens includes the reforming of the track base, increase to the depth of the racing surface, laying of new sand and the creation of new and safer track cambers.

The work is required due to the extensive legacy issues of the track surface at The Gardens. It is due to commence on 9 October.
Funding for the redevelopment will be co-funded by GRNSW and the Newcastle Greyhound Club.

As a result of the extensive redevelopment, the meetings scheduled at The Gardens on Friday, 13 October and Friday, 20 October will be transferred to Gosford, while the meetings scheduled on Saturday, 14 October and Saturday, 21 October will be staged at Richmond.
Racing should resume at The Gardens on Friday, 27 October.

We apologise for any inconvenience.
