@GreyhoundBoard
, are you fit for purpose? I’m just a Veteran trying to run dogs in Britain, when you see other situations like Debbie Calvert's saga the GBGB have questions to answer the GBGB were approached for comment but have so far refused to say anything on the situation

Amusing that McCool complains about the expense of operating his kennels whilst he's completely ignored the expense that horse racing tracks go to in putting on race meetings.

Shame though, that GBGB/RPGTV is too backward to incorporate drone replays (or any videos on RPGTV at all). Having seen a couple of  vids of Towcester, on the Foxfly youtube, I'd much rather bet on them than conventional vids.

Daryl what has that got to do with running a greyhound kennel? or greyhound racing my answer nothing, the sport is short of dogs he have them ready to run but is refused because of something that has noting to do with the sport is a disgrace imagine having a derby and not allowed to run it shocking imo

Mick's not breaking the law running his drones. Neither are the track owners in offering positions to others.

Calvert family biggest cheats in greyhound racing laying their own dog when on sky tv when a hot fav allowed to run dogs at Doncaster, this guy doesn't break the law yet dogs are banned its becoming a game of politics are the GBGB the right people to run greyhound racing my opinion is no how can you ban someone and give no reason?
