Greyhound racing returned to Gunnedah on Sunday with Saltbush Kid claiming the first win on the refurbished track in a non-TAB meeting.

After no races since June, racing was initially meant to return to Gunnedah in August but some supplies were hard to come by which pushed the return back.

However, it didn’t bother Gunnedah Greyhound Racing Club president Geoff Rose all that much as it meant the track was bang on for Sunday.

“I expected a couple little teething problems but we haven’t had any yet. It was perfect,” Rose said of the track.

“We couldn’t be happier. The reconstruction of the track, the running rail posts all worked perfectly.”

The club’s next meeting will be on October 8 with the first TAB meeting to be held a week later on October 15.
