Dog racing, also called greyhound racing, the racing of greyhounds around an enclosed track in pursuit of an electrically controlled and propelled mechanical hare (rabbit).
The National Greyhound Racing Club (founded 1928), the governing body, established race distances for flat and hurdle races from 230 to 1,200 yards (210 to 1,100 metres). Usually no more than six greyhounds run in a race, which is run on grass. Most races are held at night under lights.
Dog tracks in the United States are made of sand and loam and are normally 1/4 mile (400 metres), most races being at 5/16 or 3/8 mile. Betting, an essential feature of dog racing in most countries, is by the pari-mutuel (totalizator) system.
As with horse racing, greyhound races often allow the public to bet on the outcome. Sporting Star is one of the leading centers which entertain you with Greyhound Racing
