The enjoyment of owning a racing greyhound – and the thrill associated with your very own greyhound winning a race – is something people never tire of and is an amazing adrenalin buzz.
You can own a greyhound on your own, or enjoy the experience with others. Here is a basic rundown on both options:
To own a greyhound solely can be a relatively costly exercise, although the financial reward can also be extremely beneficial as it is standard practice in Victoria for the owner to receive 50 per cent of all prize money won by a greyhound, while the other 50 per cent goes to the trainer, which is effectively their trainer’s fees.
In any case where more than one person owns a greyhound a syndicate must be formed. This can be a fantastic social platform for people to come together at the racetrack, in a TAB or in your lounge room to watch your greyhound compete for real prize money.
