The traditional 2-wave (odds then evens) boxing process has been re-instated for all races in Victoria from Tuesday 10 November 2020. Handlers are required to exit the area after boxing and maintain their 1.5m distance from other handlers and staff at all times.
All persons (both Staff & Participants) attending today, undertook successful health screenings and wore face-masks that in-turn, permitted entry to the venue for exclusive race-day functions and operations.
Track curator Mr C. Hiscock advised that the track was medium harrowed, top dressed and graded on Thursday 3rd December.

Mepunga Warrior and Courageous Swan collided approaching the first turn. Westar Misty and Green Blazer collided approaching the first turn. Wedding Or Baby checked off Green Blazer approaching the first turn. Mepunga Warrior and Courageous Swan collided on the first turn checking Courageous Swan. Mr. Speaker checked off Green Blazer approaching the second turn and lost ground. Westar Misty and Green Blazer collided on the third turn and again on the home turn checking Westar Misty.
Mr. Speaker was vetted following the event. It was reported that there was no apparent injury found. Stewards spoke to Trainer Mr J. Formosa, regarding the racing manners of the greyhound on the first turn. After hearing evidence from Mr Formosa, viewing all the available race footage and acting on their observations, a warning was issued regarding the greyhound's racing manners.
A post race sample was taken from Mepunga Warrior, the winner of the event.
