Grafton greyhound racing ‘business as usual’

IT is business as usual at Grafton Greyhound Racing Club in the face of calls to shut down the $3 billion-a-year industry in Australia.

The revelation of live baiting on ABC program Four Corners on Monday night led to Independent federal MP Andrew Wilkie to call for the suspension of all greyhound racing.

But clubs such as Gosford raced on Tuesday night and the first of 10 races is set to jump at Grafton at 12.27pm tomorrow.

"We have got to continue on as normal," Grafton Greyhound Racing Club secretary Brad Ellis said.

No Grafton trainers have so far been implicated in the live baiting scandal.

"We pride ourselves on the highly professional way we run this club to ensure everything we do is within the realm of what's legal and morally ethical," Ellis said.
