Noting the unprecedented circumstances the industry finds itself in since racing was suspended due to the Covid – 19 outbreak, and the fact a resumption date for such sweepstakes cannot be established with any degree of confidence, the IGB has considered the issue and has decided that the most appropriate decision is to abandon the remaining rounds of these sweepstakes.

Undistributed prizemoney based on the degree of stake completion will be equally divided amongst remaining greyhounds in the respective sweepstakes, in the usual manner.

For the purposes of clarity:-

  • - A two round event with one round complete will have half of the remaining prizemoney paid evenly to remaining greyhounds
  • - A three round event with one round complete will have one third of the remaining prizemoney paid evenly to remaining greyhounds
  • - A three round event with two rounds complete will have two thirds of the remaining prizemoney paid evenly to remaining greyhounds
  • - A four round event with one round complete will have one quarter of the remaining prizemoney paid evenly to remaining greyhounds
  • - A four round event with two rounds complete will have half of the remaining prizemoney paid evenly to remaining greyhounds
  • - A four round event with three rounds complete will have three quarters of the remaining prizemoney paid evenly to remaining greyhounds

The Irish Greyhound Board would like to take this opportunity to thank all of its sponsors and advise outstanding prizemoney payments will be made in the usual manner, with the scheduled EFT prizemoney run on April 8th 2020.
