Combined harness-greyhound meeting scheduled for Devonport

Friday 19 January 2018

Tasracing in conjunction with the North West Greyhound Racing Club and the Devonport Harness Racing Club has inserted a doubleheader greyhound and harness meeting at the Devonport Showground next month.

The program on 2 February will consist of eight greyhound and nine harness events, commencing with greyhound races in the twilight time slot.

The normal procedures in place for Devonport meetings may be changed to accommodate for the additional races and the number of officials and patrons usually in attendance on any race night.

Tasracing CEO, Vaughn Lynch, said that Tasracing was happy to support the Clubs who had developed the proposal and was confident that the meeting would be a great opportunity for them to showcase harness and greyhound racing on the same night.
