Gunnedah Greyhound Racing Club president Geoff Rose remains hopeful they will be granted an additional meeting this weekend after staging a successful first meeting under the centralised blueprint on Sunday.
"It was quite a good meeting. It was very quite because of the restrictions," Rose said.
Only registered trainers are permitted to attend race meetings.
Sunday's meeting attracted 27 trainers and the money was spread around pretty well across the 10 races.
Local trainer Jamie Bush was the only to pick up multiple wins.
He took out the final two races of the meeting with Disco Chook, who romped to an eight-and-a-half metre win, and Bruno Dafon to finish with three winners for the day after Come On George had earlier snuck home in the top grade race.
It was the first chance for a lot of the dogs to race for a couple of weeks and Rose said there was some brilliant racing.
One dog that particularly impressed him was Mark Craig's General Curly, the black dog surging to his second win in two starts.
"He's a very impressive young dog, got a big future," Rose said.
"It's just a shame we haven't got another meeting this week."
They are scheduled to race again on April 19 but he has applied for another meeting this weekend.
"We've got dogs sitting in a kennel now for a fortnight because they can't go anywhere," he said.
"Some of these people (trainers) they are semi-pro, this is their income to survive.'
At the time of press Rose was still waiting for a response, but said they do still have some time. They can hold nominations over until Thursday.
But as he pointed out it isn't just a matter of saying they want a meeting. There are a lot of things that need to be considered.
"Hopefully we can accomplish that, but if we can't we will understand," he said.
