The Dog-lovers of Dubbo see 10 greyhound “mates” injured

Dubbo entertainment: watching a dog running on a broken leg

Under the sign saying “We love our dogs”, ten greyhounds suffered injuries at one Dubbo race meeting held on 3 July 2021.

Injuries ranged from cramping to a broken ankle.

It’s the third-highest race meeting total in NSW this year, after Richmond (13 injuries) and The Gardens-Newcastle, Dapto, and Casino, all with 11 injuries.

The unfortunate dogs were:

SASSY PEPPER    fractured hock 

AUTHORITY  fore toe dislocations

BEER TALKING  pin muscle

STRINGER CASEY  cramping

MIDDLE MAN  fore paw abrasion, pin muscle and both hip supports

FLYIN’ CRAZY   pin muscle and hip support

PLATINUM DESIRE  chest, wrist and both pin muscles

SPRINKLE FUSION  pin muscle and both groins

TOTAL LOCKOUT   pin muscle and both groins

LAD FROM BUNNAN  Torn stopper pad

In addition, six dogs were scratched prior to racing with injuries.

The Dubbo Greyhound Racing Club says it is one of the “safest greyhound facilities in Western NSW”, and the track is “a place of leisure and contentment.” 

GAP Dubbo also says you can find your “new best mate” there.

Spare a thought for the greyhounds nursing their injuries as they bask in the “love” of the racing industry.
