Tasracing Statement in response to ORI’s Inquiry Outcome – Mr Anthony Bullock

Wednesday 25 October 2023

Tasracing CEO Andrew Jenkins said he noted the finding released today by the Office of Racing Integrity.

“Tasracing places the highest priority on the welfare of racing animals,” he said.

“Our focus will be on working with ORI and Mr Bullock to ensure the appropriate care of greyhounds formerly trained by Mr Bullock is provided. 

“There are a number of options available that will be considered.

“It should also be noted that due process includes the right for Mr Bullock to apply for a stay of proceedings and also lodge an appeal via the Tasmanian Racing Appeal Board (TRAB).”

Mr Jenkins said the industry had zero tolerance for any type of cruelty towards animals.

 “Animal welfare is an important part of the licensing system,” he said.

“Evidence of racing animal welfare concerns should be reported to ORI or the RSPCA for investigation.”
