Healesville Racing Festival

“Straight Racing… Great Racing”

‘Straight racing is great racing’ and enormous opportunities await for greyhounds across various grades in the upcoming Healesville Festival of Racing.

The Festival begins on Sunday 7 August with heats of the Victorian Straight Track Championship followed by the final on Sunday 14 August.

The top-two in this year’s Victorian Straight Track Championship Final will contest the Group 3 national final at Richmond in New South Wales on Saturday 27 August.

One on one racing was introduced to Healesville last year with The Arrow and this event will take place again on Sunday 21 August with the quickest greyhound across the four match races winning a bonus $20,000 on top of $2,500 for winning their match race.

Another event that was inaugurated 12 months ago was the Highway 31 Maiden Challenge, with this year’s heats to be conducted on 21 August and the $15,000 to-the-winner final on Sunday 28 August.

On Sunday 4 September, heats of the Group 2 Healesville Cup are being staged with the $50,000 to-the-winner final on Sunday 11 September.

The $10,000 to-the-winner Healesville Greyhound Association Members Trophy will also be run on 11 September.
