Doping and Medication Review Panel (DMRP)

This Anti – Doping section on the GBGB web site reflects the Board’s determination to ensure clean sport in greyhound racing. It contains information that should be of use to all Trainers, Veterinarians, Officials and all with an interest in the sport.

From time to time important articles are published in the Calendar on anti-doping and medication control. These can be found in the Calendar Notices section here. We hope that this site will become a “one stop shop” where any queries that a trainer or veterinarian has concerning the administration of medicaments can be answered. There will be a Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) section, as well as a Trainers' Guide to help explain the procedures for doping control and what happens when a dog tests positive. If you still cannot find the answer you need then use the contact us form and write directly to the Panel for guidance.

Other initiatives include the Elective Test, which offers trainers a means of examining their greyhound’s urine for specific steroids prior to a race. This is a private test organised through the GBGB with our appointed laboratory. We are also working on devising better oestrus control measures for racing bitches.

Anti-doping and medication control is dynamic and constantly changing. As in all sport there will always be a tiny minority of people who will try to cheat. It is the duty of the Regulator to do all they reasonably can to prevent these attempts and to promote best practice. DMRP is the mechanism used by GBGB to achieve that end. We are here to serve your sport. Your comments will always be welcome.
