Most Popular Greyhound Voting Now open

Voting is now open for November’s People’s Choice for Most Popular Greyhound with superstar quartet Dyna Villa, Keybow, My Bro Fabio and Sweet It Is in contention.

Cast your vote for the chance to win one of five double movie passes.

The quartet was nominated on the back of some big race wins they each accomplished during the month of November.

Incidentally, nominations for December’s People’s Choice for Most Popular Greyhound are now open, so if you’ve noticed (or notice) an outstanding performance by a greyhound trained in Victoria this month, tell us about it in a personal message on GRV’s Facebook page and that greyhound could be up for voting next time.

Winners go into the running to win the 2014 People’s Choice for Most Popular Greyhound.
