Owning a racing greyhound
Talk to me.

Thinking of getting one. You can buy them from £300+, £8 a day in kennels/training, earns £40 per race,£120 per win.

Anyone on here with any experience of this?

Furnish me with wisdom.

One of ours just won at Romford A1 5/2favourite.
One win virtually pays the months Kennel bill.

Greyhound racing would be better if they had little trained monkeys riding on their backs beating them with a riding crop. I'd watch that.

We made a pact that we'd make sure that our dogs were rehomed after they retired. Lots of horror stories out there.

Been known for years about mutilated (ears taken off so they cannot be traced via their tattoos) greyhounds being dumped dead on Irish beaches and rivers.... google it... 100's of cases....

Re: Owning a racing greyhound
Just don't do it. Between UK and Ireland 30000 greyhounds leave the track/dont even make it every year. 3000 are revoked. You guess what happens to the rest.

Greyhounds are traitors to dogdom.

Their tiny heads make it clear how small the canine brain is...

Re: Owning a racing greyhound
Remember John Francome saying the cheapest bit of buying a race horse was the day you paid for it.
The ongoing cost of keeping and maintening it and training fees and vet fees ect made it a night mare

Re: Owning a racing greyhound
Greyhounds is an awfull sport as Irish says, had shares in horses before. One we lost on one we broke even on.

Going to get involved again at Santa Anita at some point in the future.

Thank you, that rather delighted me.

Re: Owning a racing greyhound
Depends if you want a hobby or to make money, I'd suggest do it as a hobby!

I've had greyhounds at Harringay, Crayford, Walthamstow, Hackney, Harlow and currently Romford.

Do it as a group, don't spend fortunes, it's a nice hobby.

I used to own a racing snail, to make him go faster I took his shell off but all it ended up doing was making him more sluggish......

Re: Owning a racing greyhound

My brothers and I had huge money invested in dogs for several years, won the biggest races

Bought and sold multiple dogs for 20k plus each etc etc

Its a cunt of a game, stay away. Also its very negative via the exposure it gives you to gambling etc

Hopefully as a society we are moving forward and away from the routine abuse of animals for our entertainment.

Kennels on the A127 near the A130 turn off, as a few there?

Ours was housed in Bersheda there with Alison Ingram. Wasn't overly keen on her, seemed like a dodgy fucker.

Walking them is great until they see something move. Both powerful and obviously silly quick, so hilarious if you're little weak mate has the lead when they bolt off like we had :o)
