CHAIRMAN’S INTRODUCTION Welcome to the 2015 Ready 2 Race Greyhound Sales I am very pleased to welcome you on behalf of Greyhound Racing Victoria’s (GRV) Board and team to the 2015 Ready 2 Race (R2R) Greyhound Sales. Now in its fourth year, R2R has grown to become one of the highlights of Victoria’s greyhound industry calendar. It provides a great introduction to the exciting world of greyhound racing which directly involves over 20,000 people in Victoria as owners, trainers, breeders, catchers and club and race day staff. Our state’s greyhound industry is now worth over $300 million with more than $40 million in prize money won annually in over 1100 races around the State. This year, over 100 greyhounds are up for sale at R2R, all ready to race and eligible to run in speciality races for those bought through R2R. And the industry’s renewed focus on animal welfare means there is more support, advice and options for owners throughout their greyhound’s racing and career and beyond. I would like to thank all the breeders, owners and trainers for their great commitment to the R2R series and the Victorian State government for its support and I wish you every success in finding the greyhound that will make you a proud owner and member of a fun, friendly and thrilling racing code. Bernie Carolan Chairman Greyhound Racing Victoria
