Greyhound racing has been one of the first sports to get back competing following COVID lockdown.
A NZ Greyhound race series was held at Addington Raceway last week using special ‘social distancing’ qguidelines.
While the racing on the track looks the same, a number of social distancing measures have been put in place.
Firstly, there were no crowds.
Secondly, dogs were spaced two metres apart right from the time they get to the kennels at the raceway.
This two-meter gap is kept up all through the organisation through to the races.
