No end to blue sky in the Sunshine State

BRISBANE Greyhound Racing Club boss Luke Gatehouse can’t believe how generous the greyhound gods are right now.

“When I first joined the club (12 years ago) our richest race was $80,000. It will now top $525,000,” he said.

And the Christmas presents just keep coming. As Chase hit the streets this week Queensland’s bumper Golden Greys Summer Carnival kicked off with the new Listed Qld Flame, which will usher the state’s qualifier into the $1.145million TAB Phoenix, to be run at The Meadows, on December 18.

Racing Qld has also just announced a massive prizemoney boost amid a host of industry upgrades.

“There has never been a better time to be in greyhound racing,” said Gatehouse.

“The participants have worked hard and are now being rewarded. This summer will be something special.”

Gatehouse, widely regarded as one of the nation’s top greyhound administrators, is never shy of applauding his stellar staff at Albion Park, known as ‘The Creek’.

“We have the busiest track and the best staff in Australia. With the borders opening up this month, you should all join us for Christmas.”
