Rule 87 – Guarding

Except as provided by Rule 90, two or more Greyhounds entered for a Race with eliminating rounds, or which is to be divided, shall be guarded for the first round only of a race with eliminating rounds and in any division whether drawn or otherwise, so that as far as possible they do not meet in the same eliminating Race or division of a Race, if both/all of them are in the same sole ownership or in the same Part-Ownership.

Only for the above purposes of guarding, ownership by a husband, by his wife, and by them alone in Part-Ownership shall be deemed identical.

No guarding other than as above shall take place in any draw.
