Breeders stays at Notts.

THE British Breeders Stakes will once again take place at Nottingham this year after agreement was reached that it would be open to all eligible greyhounds, writes Jonathan Kay.

There was controversy last year when the track excluded entries from the Jane Houfton kennel which was formerly attached to Nottingham prior to what became an acrimonious split.

Previous British Greyhound Breeders Forum chairman Stuart Forsdike had suggested a change of venue may be required if that stance was maintained, but Mark Pierrepont, the new BGBF secretary, said yesterday: "I'm pleased to report that after numerous conversations over the past weeks between myself and [Nottingham promoter] Rachel Corden, with not insignificant input from trainers' representative Peter Harnden, agreement is in place for the British Breeders Stakes to take place as usual at Nottingham later this year.

"This is terrific news for all involved with British breeding.

"The competition will be open to all greyhounds who fit the entry criteria."
