Greyhound hurdle racing


Ratification Date: 15 Aug 2008


The Australian Veterinary Association does not support hurdle racing by greyhounds.


Greyhound hurdle racing results in a higher frequency and a more serious magnitude of injury than flat racing. Hurdle racing can result in mid-air collisions with greater loss of balance and greater potential for serious injury.
