Greyhound of the Month Voting Now Open!

Voting is now open for December’s People’s Choice for Most Popular Greyhound with Luca Neveelk, Keybow, Lamia Bale, Above All and Star Recall 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 December.

Incidentally, nominations for January’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.
