Launched in December 2021, Premier Greyhound Racing is a joint venture between Entain and Arena Racing Company.

“Clarissa’s appointment is a tremendous asset to the Premier Greyhound Racing Board,” said Premier Greyhound Racing Chair Lord David Lipsey. “She is a tireless champion of animal welfare and her vast experience will be invaluable given her distinguished career associated with leading canine bodies both within, and outside, the sport.

“I will work closely with Clarissa as we drive forward with our shared passion to put greyhound welfare at the very heart of everything we do at Premier Greyhound Racing.”

She joins the group having held several senior positions across the animal welfare industry, including a 25-year tenure as CEO of the Dogs Trust, and over 20 years as Chair of the Greyhound Forum.

Baldwin commented: “It’s an honour to be joining the Premier Greyhound Racing Board. I have a lifelong passion for the welfare of animals and racing greyhounds are incredibly close to my heart, in particular after my two decades as Chair of the Greyhound Forum. 

“I am looking forward to working with David Lipsey and his team to help deliver Premier Greyhound Racing’s commitment to the welfare of greyhounds, the precious stars of our sport.”

Last month, the RSPCA, Dogs Trust and Blue Cross jointly condemned greyhound racing, claiming it is plagued by “significant welfare issues” that “have not been resolved and cannot be resolved.” The three UK animal charities issued a joint statement in support of a nationwide ban on the sport.
