Rule 127 – Late Withdrawal

Once the Parade has commenced, no alteration to the runners for a Race shall be permitted except that, until the hare signal is given for the start of the Race, a Greyhound may be withdrawn if it appears to be, and is confirmed by the Veterinary Surgeon to be, unfit to run. A Greyhound so withdrawn shall be termed a Late Withdrawal and the Race shall be postponed until a minimum period of 10 minutes has elapsed since the Late Withdrawal occurred.
