Buy your Parade Jacket for Racing

Introducing our new IRGT Parade Jackets, presenting a uniform look on parade and promoting the Irish Retired Greyhound Trust (IRGT).

With the return to pre-COVID racing operations Greyhound Racing Ireland has in collaboration with the IGOBF designed a new standardised racing parade jacket for all handlers.  The wearing of the previous style of racing coat was suspended due to COVID-19 restrictions.  

The new version will carry the logo of the Irish Retired Greyhound Trust who will benefit from a donation of €5.00 for every jacket sold.
