ABOUT GOLD MUZZLE
*Eligible pups are those that are sold through the 2019 Gold Muzzle Auction and for which all Commission and Nominations fees have been paid by the due dates
Gold Muzzle Auctions (GMA), in conjunction with Greyhound Racing NSW, are proud to announce the launch of the 2019 Gold Muzzle Auction to be held at Richmond Racetrack on Sunday, June 23.
Mark Duclos, the Managing Director of GMA, today said that the 2019 Gold Muzzle Auction will fill a void for Breeders and Owners and hopefully stimulate a controlled Breeding industry in NSW in future years.
"Since the demise of the Dapto Puppy Auction, and the reduction in breeding numbers, greyhounds whelped at the opposite end of the calendar year to pups which can be sold at the Richmond Riches Puppy Auction, have left Breeders and Owners with very little options to try and sell their pups," Duclos said.
"By creating the Gold Muzzle Auction concept, we are looking to stimulate the Breeding sector at a particular time of the year, in turn allowing pups whelped between July 1 and January 31 the following year to be offered for sale at a major event.
"With the assistance of GRNSW, we are also able to align not one, but two, Race Series for Pups sold at the Gold Muzzle with The Golden Muzzle final at Wentworth Park worth $40,000 to the winner."
Greyhound Racing NSW Chief Executive, Tony Mestrov, said the Gold Muzzle Auction and Golden Muzzle Race Series fill a void in the industry.
“We are excited and pleased to announce this new initiative,” Mr. Mestrov said. “It fills a void in this area which was created with the cessation of the Dapto Puppy Auction a few years back.
"The Gold Muzzle Auction and the associated race series is aimed at stimulating breeding, increasing the supply of quality-bred pups, and ultimately bringing new individual owners, and syndicates, into the industry.
“It’s also about enticing breeders to produce more quality pups to bring into our industry, and know that they will have an avenue to offer those pups into a healthy market.”

Nominations for the 2019 Ladbrokes Gold Muzzle Auction, to be staged at Richmond Racetrack on Sunday, June 23, are now open.
Mark Duclos, Managing Director of GMA, said the enquiry level since the announcement of the Auction had far and away exceded expectations.
"I've fielded phone calls and enquiries on a daily basis from Breeders in Queensland, Victoria, South Australia and of course NSW, since we released details of the Auction and I can tell you some of the pups that people are looking to put in the Auction, are amongst the best bred greyhounds you could hope to attract," Duclos said.
Limited to a maximum of 150 pups whelped between July 1, 2018 and January 31, 2019, all eligible pups sold through the 2019 Gold Muzzle Auction will be able to be nominated for the respective Golden Muzzle Race Series' to be conducted in 2020, with the feature event at Wentworth Park carrying $40,000 to the winner.
