The Great chase


Welcome to the 2023 Great Chase

GRV has proudly delivered the Great Chase for the past 20 years, attracting the best young greyhounds in the state while providing a social outlet and fundraising opportunities for people with intellectual or physical disabilities.

Community Series

The Great Chase incorporates a community program held across the majority of Victoria’s greyhound racing clubs which welcome local organisations from within Victoria’s disability sector to participate for the chance to share in $45,000 in cash giveaways.

Racing Series

The Great Chase is a state-wide racing series for up-and-coming greyhound stars who compete in heats at their local racetrack with the aim to progress into the rich semi finals and grand final at The Meadows. More than $230,000 in prizemoney is up for grabs across the entire series.


What is the Great Chase?

First run in 2003, GRV’s Great Chase series involves a community program which has raised more than $750,000 for groups that care for the intellectually and physically disabled.

How does it work?

Groups come together to enjoy a day out at their local racetrack where they receive a free meal, a chance to socialise and meet some of the heroes of our sport… the greyhounds.

The groups are randomly allocated competing greyhounds to cheer for on the day, with the best performing dogs winning prize money for their respective groups.

Who can participate?

The Great Chase community program is open to any organisation based in Victoria which cares for the intellectually or physically disabled.
