SIS (Sports Information Services) has announced it is to expand its greyhound service by an additional 2,800 races a year.
The SIS service currently offers six meetings every day from Monday to Saturday, with three meetings included on Sundays. Ladbrokes Coral will be among the first operators to utilise the more extensive service which will see its schedule increase from 43 to 48 fixtures per week.
The service will be boosted to seven meetings a day from Monday to Saturday and six meetings on Sunday with the addition of two more British fixtures each week from Henlow and Central Park and three more Irish fixtures from Youghal, Limerick and Curraheen Park.
Paul Witten, product director at SIS, said: "This further cements our position as the supplier with the most British and Irish meetings every week."
Barry Stanton, consultant for Central Park, confirmed: "We've been asked to provide a Sunday night fixture, which Roger [Cearns, track owner] is pleased to do as it gives our owners an additional opportunity to attend an evening meeting."
Central Park currently races mornings Monday through to Thursday plus Friday nights and has just signed Crayford trainer Barry O'Sullivan.
"That was just a happy coincidence," added Stanton. "Barry was looking for a fresh challenge and we believe he'll fit in well here. We'll also look at reintroducing Sunday opens as they were popular here in the past."
The first Sunday night meeting will be held on the 9th September.
