3 Month Trial for Revised Grading Schedule

Racing Queensland advises stakeholders the outcome of industry consultation which closed on 9 March 2018.

1) Grading Schedule

Proposal: To grade race fields closer to the actual day of the race meeting in order to reduce scratchings and maximize field sizes.

Decision: Racing Queensland will adopt the proposed grading schedule for a trial period of 3 months, commencing Monday 14 May 2018.

The full schedule is as follows:


  • Albion Park Wednesday
  • Rockhampton


  • Albion Park Thursday
  • Ipswich Friday


  • Ipswich Saturday
  • Bundaberg
  • Albion Park Sunday


  • Cairns
  • Capalaba
  • Albion Park Monday


  • Ipswich Tuesday
  • Townsville

All nominations close at 9.30am.


2) Interstate Grading

Proposal: To offer grading concessions for interstate greyhounds to encourage them to be raced in Queensland.

Decision: Racing Queensland has deferred consideration for interstate grading concessions at this point in time.


Racing Queensland thanks participants for providing feedback on these matters.
