OWNER AND TRAINER PROTOCOLS WHEN ATTENDING GREYHOUND STADIA FOR RACING.

OWNER AND TRAINER PROTOCOLS WHEN ATTENDING GREYHOUND STADIA FOR RACING.

IGB

A number of measures are in place at IGB Licensed Stadia to safeguard Public Health and to minimise the risk of spread of the Covid-19 virus.

To achieve that purpose, owners/trainers are requested to bring the absolute minimum ‘racing accessories’ when travelling to the stadium.

The Regulation Department of IGB now wishes to advise owners/trainers/handlers that from the 2nd July 2020 the use of vet bedding will be permitted in kennels at IGB licensed stadia. The vet bedding shall be machine washable at temperatures exceeding 60* Centigrade and must be washed after every use.

The use of duvet type beds/blankets will NOT be permitted. This will be closely monitored/managed by IGB stewards and track managers who reserve the right to refuse persons to use any beds in the kennels which they believe may not be up to the acceptable standards of hygiene.

We look forward to your continued co-operation in complying with Covid 19 protocols. July 2nd 2020.
