Following consultation between Greyhound Racing SA Strategic Projects Manager Scott Wuchatsch and the Mount Gambier Greyhound Racing Club committee, additional funding has been allocated for agreed projects at Tara Raceway.
Projects that the committee identified as funding priorities were a greyhound ambulance (John Deere Gator), an upgraded water trailer (manual track irrigation) and a concrete tractor turnaround.
In addition, the committee believed there was a need for additional wash bays in the vicinity of the kennel house. Also identified as a priority were new entrances to the facility along with perimeter fencing.
Wuchatsch said the estimated cost of the agreed projects would be in the vicinity of $110,000. This would leave $20,000 remaining for other projects.
“Other suggested projects include a concrete kerb along the front straight, a second slipping track, automated greyhound educational circuit, septic system for kennel house and maintenance/vehicle shed,” he said.
