As of 1 August 2023, Preferred Box Draw (PBD) events will commence at selected NSW greyhound racing tracks as part of the Greyhound Welfare and Integrity Commission (GWIC) and Greyhound Racing NSW’s (GRNSW) commitment to create a safer racing environment for greyhounds.
Preferred Box Draw events will be conducted at Dapto for 5th Grade events, and also at Wentworth Park for 5th Grade 520m and Non-Graded 280m events.
Guidelines have been developed to provide industry awareness on how both GWIC and GRNSW intend to facilitate and manage Preferred Box Draw events from nomination stage through to the review process of greyhound traits subsequent to an event.
This will include:
- How and where to declare a greyhound’s trait at nomination stage?
- Who will be responsible for conducting and overseeing the box draws?
- How will greyhounds traits be assessed during an event?
- Who will be responsible for reviewing the greyhound’s trait post-race?
Please note that these guidelines may be modified by GWIC or GRNSW as required.
The Guidelines for the Preferred Box Draws can be found here.
