Greyhound Racing SA is seeking clubs’ support for the introduction of a remote trainer fee, to be funded by trust monies from now defunct clubs such as Whyalla, Port Pirie and Kulpara.
CEO Matt Corby said GRSA was looking to introduce a remote trainer fee to assist active trainers whose registered premises were located more than 150 kilometres from their nearest accessible TAB track.
“From November 1, those trainers would receive an additional $75 payment for every TAB race meeting in which they compete with at least one runner. The fee would be capped at one payment per registered premises per meeting,” he said.
