Due to the requirement of a number of key staff to isolate through the NHS track and trace system, Perry Barr will not be able to host upcoming scheduled greyhound meetings from Saturday 13 February, for a week.
Alternative fixtures have been scheduled as follows, and Perry Barr will revert to its scheduled fixture list from Saturday 20 February.
Saturday 13 February Morning No Replacement Monday 15 February Morning Sunderland Wednesday 17 February Morning Kinsley Thursday 18 February Evening Swindon* * The current digital only Swindon fixture will now be broadcast on TRP.
ARC Greyhounds Operations Director, Rachel Corden, said, “With a number of key members of staff, as well as some trainers, being required to isolate as per NHS guidance, we have taken the decision to move Perry Barr’s fixtures over the coming week to alternative tracks. We are in touch with Perry Barr trainers directly to make sure that their dogs are supported through this short period without racing opportunities.”
“We would like to thank everyone involved for their flexibility in these ever-testing Covid times. With the enforced break in racing, we will bring forward the planned installation of the new LED lighting system at Perry Barr, which will substantially improve the track lighting”.
