Greyhound fans refuse to be dogged by scandal
LOCAL greyhound enthusiasts got on with the job at Grafton yesterday despite uncertainty on a national scale within the industry.
Yesterday NSW Racing Minister Troy Grant announced the dismissal of the entire Greyhound Racing NSW board in a step to restore the integrity of the industry.
It was business as usual at Grafton with no visible opposition to the running of its usual activities.
Club secretary Brad Ellis said there was no evidence of community backlash. He also applauded Mr Grant's action.
"In light of what we saw on Monday night there has to be instant changes," Mr Ellis said.
"That's started now and needs to continue. A lot of trainers feel betrayed by what's occurred."
