IMPORTANT CHANGES TO TRIALS
COVID-19 response measures
adopted from 24th March 2020
1. NO TRIALS on Monday After Racing at the moment.
2. THURSDAY TRIALS [usually held every second Thursday] are for LOCAL TRAINERS who pre-book their trials.
You must book your trial on Monday - by last race - not on the sheet.... NO ENTRY on Thursday.
3. To make up for Mondays, we will Trial every Thursday ** however we have important Turf Maintenance scheduled for the track 7-10th April (to ensure the track is in perfect condition for the Cup) so NO Trials on Thursday 9th**.
Trial Days must also be conducted like a 'workplace', with a closed precinct, and only the trainers, catchers and staff are permitted entry.
If you are not on the Thursday Trial sheet - you will not be permitted entry and the QRIC Steward will attend the trial sessions.
See the dates below, there will be 4 Thursday trials in April - and don't forget we have the straight track to exercise your greyhounds during the week.
Social Distancing will be enforced and you must comply with the 1.5m distance between people to help minimize the risk to the community.
All communal facilities have been withdrawn:
- NO sharing of Sorbolene type products or powder
- NO sharing of catching leads
- NO Chilled water dispenser (so do bring your own water please).
QRIC have made clear that the club must enforce the community rules so please be kind to one another, and to our staff and volunteers.
We are all doing the best we can in an ever changing situation.
Why standing 1.5m apart matters...
TRIALS INFORMATION for Trainers
Circle Trials are generally held every 2nd THURSDAY
Commencing at 3.30 pm
Due to COVID-19 measures we will try for as many Thursday trials as we can... We do have to fit in with the Turf Maintenance and must do the Tracks aeration, top dressing etc so the track is in prime condition.
