AGRA has released the National Conditions of Nomination Forms to all clubs. The form is available via the link below. A hardcopy will also be available at Greyhounds WA.
Greyhounds are eligible to represent WA should they be domiciled here for not less than 76 days out of the 150 days immediately prior to the Nomination Closing Date of the heats. A greyhound first named and registered in WA may return here to qualify for the Nationals, ONLY if not eligible to compete for any other State under the domicility clause.
Trainers who send a greyhound interstate for any period of time leading up to the running of the WA Sprint and Distance Championship Heats should ensure they lodge the appropriate Notice of Training / Removal from Kennel Form immediately, as these will be used to confirm greyhound eligibility. A greyhound competing interstate will be considered as domiciled here during that period, should it remain in the care of its WA trainer.
Nominations for the WA Distance heats close on Friday 27 July.
Nominations for the WA Sprint heats close on Tuesday 31 July.
With this year’s set up there is no buffer time to organise alternate plans for greyhounds that are found to be not eligible to represent the state at the time of nomination close. If you are unsure if your greyhound qualifies for WA or not please contact the grading office as early as possible. This will allow time to perhaps arrange travel to the state that it can represent.
Greyhound nominations are currently accepted by fax on (08) 9445 9316 or by a recorded 24-hour service on (08) 9445 5288. Nominations close at 8.30am unless otherwise advised.
A link to a sample Telephone Nomination Form is available below for your reference. Details should be provided left to right from the top of the nomination form downwards when using either telephone service. All details must be supplied.
The use of the Nomination Check List as a fax header when nominating by fax is highly recommended, especially when sending multiple nominations. Faxed nominations should always be confirmed with RWWA Racing Services via the Greyhound Trainers' Service Centre on (08) 9445 5287 by mid-morning at the latest.
Standard Nomination Forms should not be used to nominate for Feature Events. Feature Event Nomination Forms are produced stating the full conditions of entry for each of those events. Greyhounds will not be drawn into those events unless nominated on the specific Feature Event Nomination Form (when nominated by fax). Telephone nominations will be accepted for Feature Events, however it is the responsibility of the trainer to be aware of those events, their conditions of entry and to specifically nominate for that event.
Feature Event Nomination Forms will normally be available two weeks prior to the closing of nominations for those events.
Please note: In Adobe Acrobat Reader it is possible to type directly into these forms. However, you will need to print the completed forms before closing them because the details you enter won't be saved.
