Arena Racing Company (“ARC”) can confirm that they will offer support to greyhound trainers based at their five stadia during the period of suspension of racing.
Trainers at Belle Vue, Newcastle, Nottingham, Perry Barr and Sunderland will be offered £5 per dog per week to help support the welfare needs of greyhounds in their kennel who are unable to race during this time.
This support will be in place for the initial three-week period throughout which racing has been suspended and reviewed once the situation becomes clearer.
ARC Director of Greyhound Operations, Rachel Corden, said, “These are very challenging times for everyone across the greyhound racing industry.
The support offered to the trainers at our five stadia will assist them as they work hard to continue to look after all the greyhounds in their care during the three-week period when racing restrictions are in place.”
