After the first heat (race 4) of the 2019 SA Sprint Championship tonight at Angle Park maintenance staff discovered issues with the lure system. Stewards advised all races would be put back one race so staff could investigate the issues. Maintenance staff advised that there were significant issues affecting the lure, cable and rail and advised the meeting could not continue. The stewards advised that the remainder of tonight’s program (races 5 to 10) would be abandoned.


With one of the two heats completed for the SA Sprint Championship the stewards conducted a public ballot in the Angle Park kennel house acting under Rule 57(2)(b) to determine the remaining four finalists. The greyhounds randomly balloted were Shimando, Don Lesta, Shima Breeze and Blastoise. These greyhounds were added to the four placegetters from the first heat 1st Cawbourne Swade, 2nd Honcho Monelli, 3rd Alicante Bouchet and 4th Merindah.


Acting under the rules stewards declared reserves from the first heat which had placings and times with Sir Puppo (5th - 1st Res) and Zudactyl Monelli (6th - 2nd Res).
