The BGRA has once again purchased an entry to the rich Launching Pad at Sandown and will conduct The Springboard as a qualifying event for the Sandown feature.
With the race proving popular over the past two years the BGRA has decided to add some extra incentive and increase the final stakes from the standard prize money levels to offer $3,000 to the winner plus the entry form to the Launching Pad valued at $2,000.
Open to greyhounds with 1 – 3 wins and no more than 25 starts, The Springboard will be held over 500m with heats on Friday 3rd March and final on Friday 10th March 2017.
The Launching Pad is a unique concept and the BGRA is pleased to be able to offer the lucky connections of The Springboard winner an entry into the rich series at Sandown that culminates on April 13 with the running of the $150,000 to the winner Group 2 final.
