Before being accepted onto the GAP waitlist, the wind-down notification form must be lodged with the Office of Racing Integrity (ORI) and confirmation from ORI received by GAP
- As per rule 36.4 (e) all greyhounds must have completed the 28-day wind-down period. (current as of 1st of March 2020)
- All greyhounds must have a current C5 vaccination administered no less than 14 days before entry to the program and no longer than nine months, and a certificate from a registered veterinarian must be provided
- Only the greyhound listed on the waiting list may take the spot as it becomes available – swapping greyhounds is not permitted
- The GAP entry fee of $110 has been waived
Prior to or on the day of entry the following must be provided:
Photocopy of race card or naming papers
- Current C5 vaccination certificate (Please ask the vet to leave your personal details off the certificate as this is given to the new owner)

It is NOT a GAP entry requirement that the greyhound be desexed, however if the greyhound has been desexed please provide the desexing certificate.
