Central hare is up and running!

Written by Jonathan Kay on 10th May 2018

CENTRAL PARK has completed the installation of a new hare rail which also incorporates the banking of the third and fourth bends.

Barry Stanton, consultant at the Kent track, said: “It’s long been believed that the banking of the bends would establish the track as the best running surface in the industry and from what I’ve seen over the past couple of days I wouldn’t disagree.

“The new rail provides far more movement of the hare and the greyhounds seem to be relishing the chase.

“The banking, 18 inches at the apex, is ensuring the runners take the bends at speed far more readily.”

Central Park’s next big event is the Category Two British Bred St Leger over 642m for 18 greyhounds offering a winners prize of £4,000.

Closing date is noon on Tuesday, June 5, with heats and final taking place on the following two Fridays.
