RQ reminds stakeholders that phone nominations will be discontinued for all Queensland greyhound race meetings from January 1, 2022. We are now less than 100 days away from the deadline.
Many trainers have recently made the move to online nominating however around 30% of greyhounds are still being nominated over the phone. RQ recommends that all trainers are up and running with online nominations in the next 1-2 months to ensure they are accustomed to the OzChase system.
If you do not currently have an OzChase online nominations account or you require help with setting up your account, please email email@example.com or call 1800 851 155.
From January 1, 2022, Racing Queensland employees will not nominate any greyhounds.
