Macau (MNA) – The Macau (Yat Yuen) Canidrome Company Limited has submitted its plan to re-house its hundreds of greyhounds to the Gaming, Inspection and Co-ordination Bureau (DICJ) requesting a 120-day extension for use of Candirome facilities after July 20, according to a release by the gaming watchdog on Wednesday.
The second proposal includes the use of Macau Jockey Club facilities.
A DICJ spokesperson confirmed to MNA that this plan has not yet been approved although the request has been forwarded to the Land, Public Works and Transport Bureau (DSSOPT), which oversees the land assessment of both the Canidrome and the Jockey Club facilities.
The Canidrome is headed by Angela Leong On Kei, a legislator and the owner of both the Macau Jockey Club and Canidrome, as well as a director of Sociedade de Jogos de Macau (SJM Holdings).
The Civic and Municipal Bureau (IACM) obtained a copy of the plan on Tuesday.
According to the Canidrome website, the company has received 127 adoption applications from the past three adoption days, of which 72 are local applications, 39 are from Hong Kong, 15 are from Mainland China and one is from Taiwan.
