Greyhound Racing Victoria http://www.grv.org.au/  has produced their accounts for 2013. http://www.grv.org.au/Portals/17/grvAnnualReportDigital.pdf

Irish owners will be envious of the prize money. IGB turnover was more than double the turnover of GRV in 2007.  The two organisations have travelled contrasting paths since 2007. GRV has had a period of consistent and sustained growth, IGB is in a downward spiral.

GRV pays in excess of 50% of turnover in prize money, IGB pays about 25% of turnover in prize money.  Victoria in South East Australia has a population of 5.7 million which is less than the 32 counties of Ireland. The IGB have no excuse other than their own inability.graph turnover igb v grv
