About Racing

 

A great night out!


With annual attendances exceeding two million and an estimated £2.5bn wagered on and off course each year, it’s no surprise that greyhound racing is one of Britain’s most popular spectator sports.

Twenty five tracks offer quality restaurants, bars and corporate facilities envied by the rest of the entertainment industry. Between them, they host 70,000 races a year, each featuring six beautiful, sleek greyhounds racing with breathtaking speed and agility. With races taking place every fifteen minutes at most tracks, it’s non-stop action. Trying to pick the winner just adds fun to the evening.

For many years the sport was seen as the poor relation to horse racing but those times have changed. Greyhound racing is truly undergoing a modern day transformation; a “Night at the Dogs” is great fun, accessible and affordable for all.
