3 CEOS REPORT by Matt Corby HOT WEATHER POLICY It is probably timely for us to provide an update in relation to GRSAs Hot Weather Policy so that participants can understand the workings of recent changes. Arising from discussions with the ICG, a couple of important changes have been made to the previous policy based on which: - Day/Twilight meetings for which the forecast temperature at the Official Scratching Time is 41 degrees or higher will automatically be cancelled if it has not been possible to transfer those meetings within a reasonable timeframe - Trainers may scratch greyhounds without penalty up until the Official Scratching Time if the forecast temperature for the venue where the meeting will be conducted is 38 degrees or higher at that time all greyhounds for that trainer must come out under such circumstances Management will continue to review recent circumstances wherein the actual temperature exceeded the forecast for any learning to incorporate into the Hot Weather Policy going forward. In addition to the scope of the policy, the following practices will be adhered to and applied by GRSA staff as appropriate in response to hotter weather: 1) Where possible Kennels will be opened earlier. Trainers are encouraged to contact GRSA stewards if they are considering arriving before kennelling time. 2) Greyhounds to spend minimum time outside Kennels. 3) Previews are to be conducted in a shaded area. 4) Parade directly to starting boxes. 5) Greyhounds to remain in Kennel House for at least 30 Minutes after their event. 6) Club to provide adequate drinking facilities for Greyhounds. 7) Club to provide adequate cooling foot baths. 8) Club to provide bottled water to participants when temperature is 35 Degrees or above. 9) Ice Vests can be used during parading and after the Event but must be removed prior to placing greyhounds into their allotted Kennel. 10) GRSA racing department where possible to program Distance events during the coolest part of the meeting (Day meetings Early races, Night Meetings Later races) PAWNOTE: It is interesting to reflect on the fact that the Thursday night meeting of January 16 which had to be rescheduled for the following night on Sky 2 would have been the date for the 2014 Adelaide Cup had our premier event not been moved to an October timeslot in 2011. WATER TEMPERATURE ANGLE PARK KENNEL HOUSE The issue of warm running water in the Angle Park kennel house was noted some time back. In response to that problem, we have previously implemented solutions without a great deal of success. More recently, several metres of the pipe that feeds the kennel house have been diverted through a cool room in an effort to address the problem. We will continue to monitor the water temperature in the remaining days and weeks of summer. COMMENCEMENT OF GAWLER REDEVELOPMENT & OUTCOME OF FOL - CATCHING PEN SURVEY Announcements are imminent in relation to both of these matters. We thank you for your patience on both fronts.
4 ON-COURSE WAGERING FIXED ODDS V TOTE It was noted during the ICG that the broader industry should be aware of the different level of industry return that is derived from tote and fixed-odds betting on course ie during a race meeting. On that point, the commission that comes back to the industry through tote betting is somewhat greater than the amount that would be generated through fixed odds wagering. That said, the broader benefit of the introduction of a fixed odds offer to a national wagering market offsets that on-course dynamic many times over. Just as important to note, or more so, our participants should be aware of the importance of placing bets over the counter during a race meeting rather than through a mobile device when you are betting on the TattsBet tote the difference is significant. RACING MANAGERS REPORT by Shaun Mathieson ST LEGER SEMI FINALS TONIGHT Angle Park tonight sees two Semi-Finals of the 2014 SA St Leger. We saw five heats run last Wednesday and we can look forward to some close racing tonight. Last months John Gray Feature winner Wild Soul for trainer Kim Johnstone will be looking for a chance at another feature win when he contests the first semi final of the St Leger tonight. He showed surprisingly good pace last week to lead from box 7 and with his strength it was not unusual he ran a blistering 29.79 in his heat. He has drawn box 8 tonight in a much tougher field however he is a classy customer. Suntory Gold has drawn beautifully in box 2 for trainer Laurie Cahalan and a repeat of her heat win in 29.94 will see her very hard to beat. You had to be impressed by the performance of Mr. Donatello for trainer Yvonne King after last weeks heat run. He only went down by just over a length to Open Class performer Kalden Gambino with his personal time a slick 29.80. Out of box 4 tonight Mr. Donatello looks right in this race aswell. Lochinvar Impala for trainer Ben Rawlings will look to turn the tables on Wild Soul this week after he just failed to catch him in last weeks heats and expect improvement from Boonoona Boy drawn much better out of the red box tonight. The second semi final is an outstanding race let alone a semi final just to make the final. There are plenty of chances here with some of the most exciting chasers in the State doing battle. Kalden Gambino for trainer Troy Murray will be shooting for his seventh straight win after he confirmed his spot in the semis with a solid performance in the heats rating a slick 29.70. He has drawn perfectly in the one alley and has been racing against the best in the State so he looks hard to beat. Murray Harveys training performance to qualify impressive heat winner Very Bitta last week was an outstanding achievement. Very Bitta was having his first run in 3 months since coming across from NSW and against a quality field he raced away from his opposition effortlessly to win in a flying 29.98. Look for even more improvement from him tonight out of box 4. Trainer Cameron Butcher will have a two pronged attack in this semi final with last weeks heat winner Regal Looper drawn a little awkward in box 7 and his up and coming star Sidneys Shadow faring no better out of box 5. Both are very young greyhounds and are progressing nicely with Regal Looper winning last week in 30.01 and Sidneys Shadow not disgraced in running second behind Suntory Gold. Set The Scene for Laurie Cahalan didnt have much luck last week in the heats running second however he has drawn perfectly in box 8 and to quote Laurie his greyhounds would be giggling with the pink box. He won here last month in a sizzling 29.74 from this box so dont leave him out of your selections.
5 TattsBet have placed a Treble Jackpot which includes both semi finals of $2,863. It is anticipated that this pool could reach $15,000. The first four in each Semi-Final will qualify for next weeks Final with the fastest fifths being th declared the reserves. The $6,875 SA St Leger Final will be run next Thursday 20 February. The box draw for the Final will be conducted on track this evening, following race 8. 2013 SA GREYHOUND OF THE YEAR FINALISTS The GOTY panel members have now cast their individual votes on the GOTY title, with the winner nd announced at the Awards Dinner on Saturday 22 February.

AMBULATORY VEHICLES New (greyhound) ambulatory vehicles have recently been acquired for Angle Park and Strathalbyn. On the basis that there appears to be generally positive feedback in relation to the functional aspect of those vehicles, GRSA intends for any future replacements at other tracks to follow a similar example. GREYHOUND VACCINATION Canine cough is a common respiratory disease of dogs which manifests itself by way of a variety of clinical signs. These include coughing, nasal discharge, tonsillitis, pharyngitis, fever and lethargy. Greyhounds with this condition can progress to a pneumonia which can take a prolonged time to resolve. It is thought the two main agents involved are Parainfluenza type 2 virus (PI2) and Borditella Bronchiseptica (BB). Generally infection with the PI2 organism causes a milder condition than with BB. Dr Mark Kellman presented results from Idexx Pathology highlighting the variety of organisms involved in cough cases sampled from dogs in Australia. This was presented to the AGV conference in Melbourne last October. A summary of those organisms follows: Borditella bronchiseptica Canine distemper Canine adenovirus Canine herpesvirus Canine parainfluenza Corona virus Mycoplasma virus Canine influenza virus (2 types) It should be noted that all of these organisms cause cough symptoms in dogs. The agents in bold are currently included in the available vaccines and are the two most common organisms in the survey, but not the only ones. This creates a dilemma for the vaccine companies as to which organisms they will target.
7 Currently both the Parainfluenza and Borditella products are available and used. The Parainfluenza /Borditella combination comes in an injectable form and the Borditella as either an injectable or a nasal spray. Currently at GRSA the following are requirements prior to full registration of a greyhound: 6-8 weeks: C3 vaccination 12-14 weeks: C3 vaccination 12-14 months: C3 vaccination A C3 Vaccination includes the Distemper /Hepatitis and Parvo vaccines. There are no current requirements for inclusion of kennel cough in this regimen. Veterinarians use the five vaccines in various combinations. What seems to be clear is that the Kennel Cough vaccines require an annual booster to be of any effect. It is also clear that the use of the those vaccines cannot guarantee full protection from the disease. While vaccination does work in some cases, it more generally moderates the effects of the disease. Kennel Cough cases surface more commonly in the colder months of the year, particularly in kennels with draughty conditions. Trainers are generally very sensible about restricting the spread of virus by not bringing dogs to the track with any form of cough and the incidence of pre- race scratching for cough is virtually non-existent. The Board has recently resolved to support a recommendation to upgrade the present vaccination regime to C5 and for this approach to be supported by inclusion within the Breeders Rebate framework. Currently GRSA rebates $60 per pup without a documented receipt however should a Breeder have pups vaccinated with the C5 a rebate of the total cost will be considered upon receipt of documentation of payment. Participants are therefore advised to consult with your Veterinary Surgeon regarding the use of the Borditella nasal vaccine for pups as well as racing greyhounds prior to the onset of the colder weather. STRATHALBYN TRIALS CANCELLED ON FRIDAY Due to staffing difficulties the Southern Greyhound Racing Club have advised that their trials on th Friday 14 February will be cancelled. The trials are now reprogrammed for the following week st (Friday 21 February) along with qualifying trials. FINAL FIELDS ANNOUNCED FOR MEADOWS CARNIVAL The final fields have been announced for the Group 1 Temlee, Group 1 Rookie Rebel and Group 1 th Zoom Top to be run at The Meadows on Saturday (15 February). The races are outstanding line ups but unfortunately the SA invitations of Ernie Bung Arrow (injured) and Fire Tyson did not make it however it is a terrific achievement to be recognised by the Meadows committee for their outstanding season.

9 GREYHOUND OF THE MONTH JANUARY Ernie Bung Arrow started 2014 off the same way he ended it with a Greyhound of the month award for January after he was undefeated for the month. Trained by Ken Gill the SA superstar had a terrific month of racing with three wins from three starts highlighted by his brilliant all the way win in the SA Sprint Championship Final on January 17. In one of the best Sprint series seen in recent times Ernie won his way through to a high quality final where he would take on the best chasers in the State all with eyes on his scalp and the trophy. He drew 6 in the final and exploded out of the boxes pouncing on the early lead. From there he went on to record yet another feature race win winning by 4 lengths in a blistering 29.71. He started again in January for a very impressive 5 length win at headquarters in a sizzling 29.60 and things were right on target for a Group 1 Temlee invitation in February. Unfortunately the champion sustained an injury, missing the Temlee and will be off the racing scene for around 3 months. With Stud duties beckoning Ernies time away from the track should go quite quickly and hopefully when he returns he continues to capture the imagination of all Greyhound fans. At the end of the month Ernie Bung Arrows career record stands at 21 starts with 19 wins and 1 placing, and earnings around $170,000. RUN OF THE MONTH JANUARY Run of the month for January was Ernie Bung Arrow for trainer Ken Gill. The son of Lochinvar Marlow and Slippers Tonic showed great speed to lead at Angle Park on Thursday 23rd January to score a tearaway victory in a mixed 2/3/4 Ernie Bung Arrow & connections after winning the Sprint Championship event. He showed his customary explosive pace from box 5 to lead his rivals in a slick 4.39 to the winning post on the first occasion. From there he opened up a big lead down the back with a sizzling 16.78 second split before racing home for a solid 5 length win in a slick 29.60 for the 515m journey. SEPARATION OF GAWLER STARTED THIS WEEK The separation of Gawler was introduced on Tuesday this week. At Gawler the Tuesday (Provincial 1) meeting will be different grading to both Friday and Sunday (Provincial 2). The greyhounds current grade as of Monday at Gawler was used as the point of separation for both Provincial 1 and Provincial 2 . With the introduction of separate grading at Gawler the Grade 6 rules have changed. The changes allow for two more wins at Gawler for SA Bred greyhounds (two tracks) and 1 more win for Non SA Bred greyhounds making it a maximum of 4. With the separation there will be really no more opportunity to beat the grader. If as of Monday your greyhound had won all of his/her Grade 6 events then there are no extra races to be run however if you still had Grade 6s to win then there may be a few more opportunities available.
10 With the introduction of Provincial 1 and Provincial 2 other tracks of same classification have also changed from Provincial. Listed below is how we recognise tracks in SA. Angle Park Thursday City A Angle Park Monday City B Gawler Tuesday Provincial 1 Angle Park Wednesday Provincial 2 Gawler Friday Provincial 2 Gawler Sunday Provincial 2 Strathalbyn Sunday Provincial 2 Mt Gambier Friday & Sunday Provincial 2 Pt Augusta Country PANELS TO MEET IN THE NEXT FEW MONTHS As part of GRSAs Strategic Plan we will be meeting with the Professional Trainers panel very shortly. In March GRSA will meet with the Breeding Task Force followed by the next Industry Consultative Group meeting in April. I will be contacting these panel members shortly to arrange meeting dates and agendas. MAIN POINTS FROM GRADING REVIEW PANEL The main points that will affect participants from the recommendation and implementation from the Grading Review Panel are GRP Members Membership of the GRP would benefit from periodical rotation to encourage fresh perspectives on the SA grading system. Both Gavin Harris who already sits on the ICG and John Vivian advised that they would be willing to come off the panel if there were other candidates available. We have already received an application to join the GRP to meet at the end of this year. To be determined by CEO and Racing Manager. Comments on Nominations Marked Only The panel resolved that Only should be disregarded over all distances and the grading left to the Grader. The Grader appreciates trainers putting comments on their nomination and generally tries to assist where possible. Transition to Separate Grading at Gawler Separate Grading will now commence at Gawler in February. Tuesday (Provincial 1) will be different to both Friday and Sunday (Provincial 2) for grading. Greyhounds will keep their current grade when Gawler is separated for both tracks. GRSA will program more Grade 6 heats and finals from January onwards at Gawler to assist with maximising Grade 6 returns. With the introduction of separate grading at Gawler the Grade 6 rules will change. The changes will allow for two more wins at Gawler for SA Bred greyhounds (two tracks) and 1 more win for Non SA Bred greyhounds making it a maximum of 4. With the separation there will be really no more opportunity to beat the grader. Grade 6 rules will change to - GRADE 6 For greyhounds that have not won a Grade 5 or above at the track at the time of nomination. However a greyhound will be ineligible for Grade 6 events if it has won an APM or APK Grade 5 or above event over 515m. (5NP races in SA are exempt)
11 Non-SA Bred Greyhounds: Non-SA Bred Greyhounds are eligible to win one (1) Grade 6 (2 with a 'Beat The Grader' win) at up to four different tracks in South Australia. This is a maximum of four (4) Grade 6 wins (5 with a 'Beat the Grader' win/s) in total." At least two (2) of the wins must be away from Angle Park. Once a greyhound wins its fourth Grade 6 (5 with a Beat the Grader win/s), at any tracks where it is still eligible for Grade 6 grade, it will revert to a Grade 5. SA Bred Greyhound For City (APK & APM) tracks, SA Bred greyhounds are eligible to win one (1) Grade 6 (2 with a Beat the Grader win) at each track. At Provincial Tracks (APD, Gawler Provincial 1, Gawler Provincial 2, Strathalbyn & Mount Gambier) SA Bred greyhounds can win one (1) Grade 6 (2 with a Beat the Grader win) over 2 different distances at that track. At Country Tracks, SA Bred greyhounds can win one (1) Grade 6 (2 with a Beat the Grader win) over each distance at that track. For the purposes of this Grading Rule, Angle Park APK, APM and APD and Gawler Provincial 1 th and Gawler Provincial 2 are considered as different tracks from the 10 February 2014 Strathalbyn 319m The 319m at Strathalbyn will be included on the Order of Preference at the same level as the 388m for Angle Park. Veterans Races Subsequent to the last meeting the GRP were concerned with the lack of Veterans races being conducted and recommended a slight change to the conditions of the race to allow a greater opportunity for these older greyhounds. It was agreed to - the age restriction open to 3 years and advise that 4yo and older greyhounds will be given preference and then the race will then be made up of the next oldest greyhounds nominated in order of age (oldest first, if they are identical age they are separated on form). Trainers must still nominate for the race. st Introduced from 1 February 2014 OZCHASE UPDATES GRADES FOR GREYHOUNDS In the last few months we have seen the C5W333VNAI comments appearing in the Race Books and also trainers can look up how many nominations are nominated for a distance when nominating online now trainers can see the grades of their greyhounds. In the last few weeks both trainers who nominate online can look at the grades of their greyhounds prior to nominating. Grades will appear so long as that greyhound has been nominated at the track and distance. In time it will be every grade for every distance however as the Grading staff have to put grades in manually some will not be appearing until you nominate. This is only for SA tracks at present. The table to the right highlights where to click to see your greyhounds grade online. There is now even more incentive for trainers to get themselves activated for online nominations. Please contact GRSA staff to be activated.
12 2014 ADELAIDE GREYHOUND AUCTION The Adelaide Greyhound Racing Club (AGRC) in conjunction with GRSA, will once again conduct the Adelaide Greyhound Auction in 2014.

It is a requirement of GRSA that if you choose to breed greyhounds in South Australia that you have a current Breeders licence. If you are looking at breeding with your bitch and you are currently not licensed as a Breeder then you MUST obtain a breeders licence PRIOR to your bitch being served. Should you have your bitch served prior to obtaining a licence then a Stewards fine may be imposed. This may also jeopardise the chances at receiving the GRSA Breeders Rebate. If you have any queries about a Breeders licence please contact the Animal Welfare Officer Tom Hayles at GRSA for further information. STUD DOG AND BROOD BITCH REBATES Separate to the Breeders Rebate that GRSA has introduced over the past few years which has created plenty of interest for participants wanting to breed GRSA will continue to rebate Brood Bitch DNA testing and Stud Sire Registration.
13 GRSA reimburses breeders $90 for DNA testing of their bitch prior to whelping and with Greyhounds Australasia charging $125 to DNA test this has been an added bonus for local Breeders. st Sire Registration with GA on a National level increased from $600 2011 and as from 1 January 2013 increased to $1,050 however GRSA decided to reimburse the difference back to $600 to aid our participants and encourage breeding. These reimbursements are for those local participants that are registered in SA and breeding in SA and have their Stud Dog standing in SA. With all rebates GRSA considers each application on an individual basis ultimately trying to assist the local breeding industry. LODGEMENT OF BREEDING PAPERWORK Breeders will need to ensure paperwork is lodged with GRSA by the correct due dates to ensure updates are received to the National platform (NDR). Notice of Service (within 14 days) Whelping Notice (within 14 days) Litter Registration (within 4 months) Should the paperwork be received by GRSA after this time the following penalties may be imposed: 2 to 4 weeks overdue $25 5 to 8 weeks overdue $35 9 to 12 weeks overdue $50 13 to 16 weeks overdue $75 17 plus weeks overdue $100 GRSA WEBSITE VIDEOS The facility for video replays is available for all SATAB tracks on the GRSA website, go to the Race Results page and click on the race and the video will be available in the right corner of the page.

We would also continue to work with other States in finding opportunities to improve the profile of racing in South Australia. CONSECUTIVE DAYS POLICY A consecutive days policy was introduced from 1st November 2006 which stated greyhounds are not allowed to compete on consecutive days with the exception of greyhounds that qualify for Semi Finals, Finals and two day coursing meetings. Trainers are advised that it is their responsibility to ensure that their greyhounds do not compete on consecutive days. th The policy was updated on 30 July 2009 to accommodate the situation at the time where two meetings on different days are drawn on the same day ie Monday and Sunday. This was updated to includeWhere the Grader has a greyhound nominated for both Monday and Sunday and he sees that it is likely to get a reserve spot on the Monday and a start on the Sunday; he will attempt to call the trainer and get his preference. If the trainer cant be contacted or hasnt made any notes on the nomination form, the Grader will give the greyhound the Sunday start and not put it in as a reserve on Monday. The greyhound wont be drawn into both meetings. This will apply to any other times that fields are drawn out of order. It was also agreed that the policy be extended to not allow a greyhound be drawn in as a reserve if it has a start the previous day. Unfortunately with the limitations at present of the OzChase racing system the GRSA Grading staff have not been able to pick up some greyhounds nominated on consecutive days by trainers which has meant that these greyhounds have been drawn in on consecutive days which goes against the policy. It is a requirement of trainers to ensure that once they have gained a start that they withdraw their greyhound from any consecutive engagements. GRSA stewards have advised that as this is a trainers obligation they will be monitoring this situation and considering all reasons for scratchings.
15 HOT WEATHER POLICY EXTREME WEATHER Over 30 Degrees ALL COURSING MEETINGS cancelled. Over 40 Degrees NON TAB MEETINGS- Day and Twilight cancelled. TRIALS cancelled. Over 40 Degrees TAB MEETINGS and NIGHT MEETINGS - Consideration will be given to change these to more suitable timeslots. If it is not possible to facilitate such a transfer(s) within a reasonable time frame, then Day and Twilight meetings scheduled for those venues will be cancelled. Night meetings on these days will continue as scheduled but may be called off, delayed, cancelled or abandoned at the discretion of the Integrity and Standards Manager and Steward in Charge who will take into account the advice of the Veterinarian. MEETINGS TO BE CANCELLED Greyhound Racing SA will announce any cancellation or reprogramming at scratching time. Radio TAB will be advised of any alterations.

INTEGRITY & STANDARDS MANAGERS REPORT by Paul Marks NOTIFICATION OF NEGATIVE SWABS A request was made through the ICG panel for swabs that have been cleared to be notified to trainers, believing that this service would provide greater transparency and certainty for those participants. Additionally, the question was raised as to whether GRSA would entertain publishing the outcomes of all swabs. The matter has since been discussed internally and it has been resolved that GRSA will provide email notification of any clear swab result on the basis of application by email to [email protected]
18 DRESS CODE The code for all persons parading greyhounds is as follows: Male and Female Black Dress pants or slacks ONLY No Jeans Black Shoes ONLY Collared White Shirt Sleeves preferred Black or Navy Jumper Polo Top GRSA Polo Shirts Approved head wear (No Beanies)(Only GRSA Baseball Caps) Handlers are to report unclean parade coats which will be taken out of circulation immediately until washed. TESTOSTERONE THRESHOLD RULE Further to the introduction of testosterone threshold levels in bitches from January 1, 2013 there still appears to be a level of confusion at the national level regarding the derivation of those levels. In consultation with Dr John Vine from RASL, Greyhounds Australasia (GA) distributed the following advice to participants in August of that year to assist with general awareness. Greyhounds Australasia (GA) on behalf of its members wishes to clarify its testosterone threshold rule in regard to the establishment of a testosterone threshold level in bitches. The testosterone threshold rule was formally communicated to industry in October 2012, and took effect from 1 January 2013 following lengthy local and international research into the level at which testosterone occurs naturally in bitches. This research then enabled GA to determine an appropriate natural threshold, above which it would be clear that testosterone had been artificially increased. In this regard, the key facts are: - 187 samples were taken from greyhound bitches not on any prescription medication in Australia and New Zealand. The samples were taken by a Control Body representative, and validated against a populated collection sheet clearly identifying individual samples, prior to being sent to Racing Analytical Services Limited for analysis. - Of the 187 bitches studied more than 80% of bitches showed no 5b-androstane-3a,17b-diol (BaB) at all, with a maximum of 1.03 ng/mL found. - This information was exchanged internationally with the Greyhound Board of Great Britain and their testing laboratory, namely the LGC Groups HFL Sport Science who were undertaking a similar exercise. - A study by the Greyhound Board of Great Britain of bitches in oestrus showed very low levels of BaB throughout the cycle. Therefore, it is not expected that a bitch coming into oestrus or inadvertently racing while in oestrus would return a prohibited level of BaB. - To further validate the threshold level, trials were also undertaken on 6 bitches by a professional research company SCEC Pty Ltd in conjunction with the NSW accredited laboratory, the Australian Racing Forensic Laboratory. This trial involved administration of Testosterone Propionate, with levels of BaB peaking at over 100 ng/ml and remaining over the 10 ng/mL limit from under one hour after administration:
19 - up to 98 hours after 25 milligram doses to three (3) bitches, and - up to 120 hours after 50 milligram doses to another three (3) bitches. - Brynn Hibbert, Professor of Analytical Chemistry, University of NSW was then engaged to undertake statistical modelling and to validate the Australian/New Zealand and international research. - A review of a draft of the proposed rule by a nationally recognised firm of lawyers occurred prior to consideration and adoption by the members of GA. - GAs evaluation of the analytical and statistical studies by highly qualified experts, locally and internationally, enabled the establishment of a statistically-robust testosterone threshold level, set at above 10.0 ng/mL for the testosterone metabolite BaB. Taking into consideration the key facts presented it is evident that the chances of a greyhound bitch naturally exceeding the threshold level to be extremely remote. In closing, we advise that since 1 January 2013 when this new rule was introduced over 3,643 swabs on bitches have been taken nationally, with 31 of these returning a positive or irregularity, less than 1%. GA again reminds participants that it is their responsibility to ensure that a greyhound treated with a testosterone related product must still strictly comply with the rules. Reliance on this information will not be a defence in the event of a breach of the rules it is for general communication purposes. TRACKING OF GREYHOUNDS As a result of recent rule changes and the current Welfare Policy and responsible breeding program, additional requirements have been introduced to assist in the lifetime tracking of all greyhounds whelped in SA. Effective immediately the following procedures will be required to be followed by all licensed breeders. Notification of Whelping Notices are required to be lodged within 14 days under the rules, therefore breeders are reminded of their obligation in relation to this matter. Litter registrations to be lodged within 4 months of Whelping. In the event of a pup in the care of a licensed breeder either named or unnamed becoming deceased GRSA must be notified within 48 hours of that death (as required under GAR 106 3 ) on the official NOTIFICATION OF RETIRED GREYHOUND form duly signed by a veterinary surgeon as required. In the event of a death by natural causes the appropriate form must be completed along with a signed affidavit witnessed by a Justice of the Peace. Where greyhounds are sold, Breeders are required to lodge with GRSA a completed TRANSFER FOR AN UNAMED GREYHOUND FORM signed by all parties. The requirements of all breeders to abide by the above are essential in maintaining these records. Failure to supply this information as required will result in fines being imposed, with the potential for further action against repeat offenders up to and including the withdrawal of that persons licence.
