As punters, Neil and I appreciate the need for NZ punters to have the best possible information. In particular, we see sectionals as one of the key factors to growing confidence in betting on NZ greyhound races.
We’ve been taking sectionals for all races since September last year.
However, throughout this time, we haven’t been able to secure any funding. And the time commitment to capture and manage the sectionals is significant.
With the greatest reluctance, we have decided to put the sectionals on hold. We will continue to engage with key stakeholders across the industry to see if we can get some progress.
In the meantime, we will continue to provide sectionals for all PN greyhound meetings and for selected races, particularly heats of major features.
This hasn’t been an easy decision – first and foremost, as punters we want the best information possible. However, we simply can’t do everything and without any industry support we can’t continue to provide what we think is an essential service for NZ greyhound punters.
David and Neil
