No sparrow The result appears to Stand , as soon as the Racing office seen the Time surely they realise there has been an Error and check the Dogs ID 

WTF is actually going on in this Sport ?

I would pretty much guarantee that something is untoward here and maybe even worse.
Report sparrow September 22, 2023 6:34 PM BST
I saw something similar many years ago at Hackney when a 4 year old suddenly found a whole lot of time to win half the track at a big price. The dog was up for sale a few weeks later. If they can't trace any money for the dog then they will find a way out of this somehow or other.

Too much racing to handle must be one reason if it was a genuine mistake but otherwise I dread to think what has gone on there. They need to hurry up and get on with finding out what has happened.
Report sparrow September 23, 2023 12:57 PM BST
Plenty said about the matter this moring on RPGTV,  but as one said "it's the next day and still nothing has been said".  I suppose Swindon think that if they ignore the issue it will eventually go away.

If any other dog found so much there would automatically be a local enquiry, which would probably be kicked up to the GBGB. Can't believe they didn't have a local straight away.

A sensible post from the " greyhound scene " .....

For what it's worth, the way I see it is that almost certainly a mistake has been made and the wrong dog ran. There was no betting coup so in all likelihood it was simply a mistake. These things happen and the main thing is to learn from them and try to ensure that such a thing doesn't happen again (although whatever systems and safeguards you put in place you can never completely rule out human error).

Swindon needs to hold its hands up though and admit that a mistake was made and void the race. No sackings or witch hunts - just honesty and common sense. To pretend that nothing was wrong is ridiculous. If they insist that the correct dog ran then why have they not held a Steward's about time finding? They can't have it both ways

As has more or less been already said on here and  that the track mainly at fault for failing to inform people.
Report Catford Toteboard September 25, 2023 8:17 PM BST
GBGB are looking at it now; the Post say they're looking at the microchip data and records. Expect a local enquiry that results in a small fine and a telling off for the track.

Thank you wonders and good work.  As we thought though no explanation from anyone just brushed under the table. Just shows the state of the industry now when punters have to investigate themselves instead of the people being paid to inform us.

As a long time lurker on here who occasionally attends Swindon I have followed this with some interest. Being around a 4KG weight difference between them it seemed they must have both gone to the track and the correct dog weighed. Checking the advance cards Strideaway Honey was down to run in a 2 dog trial that day but the result shows only the other runner. This at least explains why she was at the track.

Mix up must have been after the Weigh in  ,  But The trials before Racing ? And Honey  has not run in it ,so at that Point they must have realised there was a Problem

Total shambles TBH ,The more you hear the More you wonder what Gone on ,Thanks for the Info Felix

So we Have both Dogs were weighed 

I take it the Trial was Before Racing ,Honey does not Run in the Trial , Why ? 

Then she runs in the Race ,They must have known there was an Issue before the Trial ,its Crackers what has Gone on

There doesn't seem to be any Betting Coup attempted , Not sure what was Matched on here

you can only Imagine they have gone to get her For the Trial , She was not there ,Unknown to everyone She  Had Ended up in Seas Kennel

If that's the Case where  was Sea at this Point , Columbo would struggle to Work this out TBH

Maybe the Kennel hand went to get her for the Trial , Noticed it was not Her , But surely they then Scan the Dog to find out who it is
