SA Dog Racing Control Board

Barossa Rodeo 2023

South Australians may remember when the SA Dog Racing Control Board took over on February 1st 1977. Some great names in this story many stalwarts of the industry over many years in SA.

Gary Smith – I remember taking a dog over to race with a top Melbourne trainer on a hot day and Howard Ashton let us camp in his air conditioned office until kennelling time, what a nice bloke Howard was.
