    • Western Australian Greyhound Racing Association board member Anthony Glenny stood down pending an inquiry
    • Stewards inquiry to be held on May 18

    Racing and Gaming Minister Colin Holt has today asked the chairman of the Western Australian Greyhound Racing Association (WAGRA) to stand down board member Anthony Glenny until an inquiry into Mr Glenny's conduct is held later this month.

     

    Mr Holt made the request of WAGRA chairman Roy Rowe to suspend Mr Glenny after the greyhound trainer allegedly refused to answer Racing and Wagering Western Australia (RWWA) stewards questions following an inspection of his Bakers Hill training facility on Sunday, May 3.

     

    "There is no suggestion that Mr Glenny was conducting any illegal training practices at his facility," he said.

     

    "However, Mr Glenny's decision not to co-operate with stewards on Sunday has lead RWWA to call a formal inquiry requiring his attendance.

     

    "Mr Glenny has been suspended from the board while the inquiry takes place."

     

    The inquiry will be conducted on Monday, May 18.

     

    RWWA has directed that all licences and authorities held by Mr Glenny be suspended pending the outcome of the inquiry.
