The key factors you need to know

Owning a racing greyhound can be an exhilarating experience. No matter the standard of race your greyhound is competing in or how long you’ve been involved in the sport, it is always an enormous thrill watching your very own greyhound race for real prize money.

And the excitement levels only multiply when your greyhound is first to cross the finish line – whether you are watching it from your lounge room, at the TAB or at the racetrack with your mates – there’s nothing like that winning feeling!

There are two basic pathways to choose from when buying a greyhound for the purpose of racing:

1. You can purchase a pup


2. You can purchase a greyhound that is already racing (or one that is just a few weeks or months away from racing for the first time).
