I see the comment 'BORE IN STRETCH' a number of times at the track I follow.

I understand this is where a hound barges another out of the way. Is this 'crime' punished in any way, and how is this determined when there's sometimes a lot of contact on the track anyway? Does the dog have to re-school as it might for checking or interference?

Thanks
Angela

It used to be the case that when a greyhound got 2 "bore in" or "bore out" comments, he would have to school.....I'm not sure exactly what the regs are today.

They also used to watch greyhounds who received "raced recklessly" comments.

Yes, Rock is correct. At The Woodlands, after a bore out or a checked turn, or fighting, you are required to school back on. However, you can only have so many of these in your career, otherwise you aren't allowed to race at that specific track anymore. Each track varies on this and have special regulations on this.

Wheeling, and Im sure other tracks as well, have a rule that no dog can come in with a judges comment for their racing lines (i.e. bore out, checked turn, fought, etc.).
