Trials

 

Race Day Trials 

After the race night, trials are available to participants who have a runner in the race that night only, with the number of trials limited to the number of available kennels.

 

Under the GWIC Race Day Hydration and Hot Weather Policy all greyhounds trialling after the last may require a kennel, therefore it is imperative the Club has kennels available for all dogs trialling. 

 

E.g.

10 races = 16 kennels available.

11 races = 8 kennels available.

12 races = 0 kennels available, therefore NO trials will be conducted after the last. 

 

Unfortunately, where Gosford has 12 races, we are unable to offer trials after the last due to both limited kennel availability as well as it being too late for us to operate. 

 

Race day trials should be booked ahead of time. They can be booked via ontheclock.com.au 

 

If you are unsure, please phone the office (4323 4423) ahead of time to confirm, we do not want you to be disappointed by turning up to the track with a dog that we are unable to assist you with a trial for.
