GREYHOUND RACING LINKS
It's a sure bet that joining in the wagering will add to the fun and excitement of your day at the races. There is simply no greater exhilaration than betting on a greyhound and then cheering it to victory!

Wagering at the Park is referred to as Pari-mutuel, meaning: people betting among one another. The track has no financial interest in the outcome of any race; it just holds the stakes and sees that the winners and others receive their share as prescribed by state law.
