NGRC cancels F&M decree.

WITH the lessening of the devastating effects of the foot and mouth outbreak, the NGRC last Thursday rescinded the recommendations it had made to tracks, trainers and owners with regard to greyhound racing.

The Club had asked that greyhounds only be exercised within the boundaries of licensed premises, the use of knacker meat was advised against, and disinfected entry and exit points for vehicles carrying greyhounds to and from tracks was advised.

However, one proviso remains-if a track is within an area subject to local authority restrictions, or is likely to receive dogs from such an area, enquiries must be made of the appropriate local authority and its recommendations adhered to.
