Group 1 Ladbrokes Hobart Thousand
A National Group 1 Event.
An open best series to be conducted in Heats and a Final and a Consolation over 461 metres.
It is anticipated that 8 Heats will be conducted with the winner of each Heat qualifying for the Final and the two fastest seconds being named reserves.
In the case of a Dead Heat resulting in 2 (or more) greyhounds equally qualifying for the Final then the selection of the greyhound to participate shall be drawn by lot.
A Consolation for those greyhounds contesting the Heats that do not qualify for the Final shall be conducted with the field selected on the placing achieved in the Heat with times being the deciding factor to determine preference between any greyhounds achieving the same placing in the Heats. This is not a compulsory Consolation and greyhounds must be nominated specifically for this Consolation after having competed in the Heats.
In the case of a “No Race” or “Abandoned Race” the greyhound to compete in the Final shall be determined as provided in the Rules. In the case of a “No Race” or “Abandoned Race” the Stewards shall also, on the same day, conduct a public random draw of one greyhound from the other greyhounds which competed in the No Race or were eligible to compete in the race at the time the race was abandoned and that greyhound shall be eligible to participate in the Consolation, should it be nominated. For purposes of field selection for the Consolation the greyhound so drawn shall be deemed to have achieved a third placing with the slowest time.
