Trainer and breeder, Mr Ronnie Bonanno has been suspended by Greyhound Racing NSW (GRNSW) following serious allegations, including animal cruelty.

GRNSW has set up an inquiry headed by former Chief Steward of NSW Racing, Mr Ray Murrihy.

Mr Murrihy has almost five decades of experience in racing investigations.

Mr Bonanno was suspended on 28 March 2018 pending the outcome of the inquiry.

No charges have been laid against Mr Bonanno.

GRNSW Chief Executive Officer, Tony Mestrov says animal welfare is paramount.

“The allegations are serious which is why GRNSW has moved immediately to suspend Mr Bonanno’s registration pending the completion of the inquiry,” he said.

“The appointment of Mr Murrihy underlines how seriously we are taking the allegations.

“This inquiry needs to now run its course.”

Mr Mestrov said GRNSW was determined to stamp out any improper behaviour in the industry.

“This zero-tolerance approach will continue to ensure the industry can move forward for the vast majority of participants who abide by the rules.”

As the inquiry is ongoing, GRNSW will not be providing further comment at this time. /media release
