The Greyhound Racing SA board last week signed off on an increase which equates to in excess of $1 million annually in participant returns.
And GRSA CEO Matt Corby said the increase highlighted the current strength of greyhound racing in South Australia.
“It also draws on the momentum of the recent announcement of State Government support for the three racing codes,” he said.
To be implemented this week, the changes include a stakemoney increase of 15% for all racing beyond a distance of 400 metres. This also includes time-graded and Pathway meetings.
Stakemoney for all racing up to and including 400 metres will be increased by 10%.
In other news, GRSA announced that club members (of their relevant club) will no longer have to pay trial fees at SA TAB greyhound tracks (Angle Park, Gawler, Murray Bridge and Mount Gambier). However, non-members will be required to pay $10 a dog to the relevant club.
Mount Gambier Greyhound Racing Club members had previously paid $5 a dog to trial at Tara Raceway and non-members $10 a dog.
