GREYHOUND Racing NSW (GRNSW) has advised the Lismore track will be closed indefinitely following an inordinate number of injuries at the track.

The Greyhound Racing NSW statement read: "GRNSW has announced that all racing and trialling activity at the Lismore track will be suspended pending the completion of an assessment of track safety by an independent panel of experts.
"GRNSW regrets any inconvenience caused to participants as a result of the track closure, but greyhound welfare and safety remains GRNSW's key priority."
