Towcester Kennel Instructions

In response to recent actions by the GBGB, Towcester management has issued the following statement to trainers regarding race and trial kennelling:

Kennelling Times

There will be one fixed kennelling time for every meeting. All greyhounds (trials and races) must be kennelled within the allotted time. In accordance with GBGB Rule 112: ‘The Trainer of a Greyhound who fails to have such Greyhound in the Racing Kennel by the time appointed shall be reported to the Local Stewards, who may at their discretion disqualify the Greyhound from running at that Meeting and who shall in any case report the circumstances to the GBGB.’


  • Kennel trial dogs: 16:30 – 16:45
  • Kennel race dogs: 16:45 – 17:30
  • Trials start: 17:40
  • Races start: 18:34

Wednesday / Thursday / Friday / Sunday

  • Kennel trial dogs: 13:00 – 13:15
  • Kennel race dogs: 13:15 – 14:00
  • Trials start: 14:10
  • Races start: 15:02

Trial Bookings

Trainers are required to make all trial bookings on a Monday morning for the forthcoming week.

To ensure that race dogs are not disturbed, trial dogs will be allocated a different block to racers. This will limit the number of trial kennels available, and coupled with the new time constraints around kennelling, we will have to limit the number of trials to 8 trials, and solos cannot be guaranteed. This will be monitored closely, and we will increase the number of available trials if we have enough time to do so before racing.

These measures will resolve the recently published kennelling issues identified by the GBGB. If you have any queries or require further clarification, please contact the racing office. Your cooperation is greatly appreciated.
