Horizon @ Sale – where infinite possibilities arise

The Sale Greyhound Racing Club is proud to launch a brand new race called the Horizon (440m), carrying first prize money of $25,000.

Heats of this inaugural event will be held on Sunday, 30 May (Twilight), with the final a week later on Sunday, 6 June (Twilight).

Sale GRC Operations Manager, Rob Popplestone said the club is confident that the Horizon will quickly grow in stature.

“We have high hopes that, in the years ahead, the Horizon @ Sale will qualify for Group 3 status,” Popplestone said.

“The Sale GRC already prides itself on its promotion, planning and execution of its main feature event, the Gold FM Sale Cup (650m), which we host on Boxing Day each year and which is Australian greyhound racing’s only Group 1 event held at a country venue.”

“The Sale Cup has proven itself to be an attractive event to a broad demographic, and invites crowds in excess of 5000, with bands, DJs, fashion, food and wine all complimenting the quality of greyhounds on show striving for Group 1 glory.”

“We endeavour to build on the Horizon @ Sale with a special Awards night to be introduced in 2022, which will include a range of awards recognising those that contribute to the club and the industry.”
“It will also recognise local businesses that support our industry and community and acknowledge those who go above and beyond.”

The Sale GRC is marketing the 2021 Horizon @ Sale as the start of something special and where infinite possibilities arise.

*Nominations for the Horizon close on Wednesday, 26 May at 11.00am. For more information visit
