  • Which Greyhound events do we cover?

    We cover all tracks registered under the GBGB (Greyhound Board of Great Britain) and the major Greyhound races including -

    • Greyhound Derby- Wimbledon hosted the Greyhound Derby between 1985 until its closure in 2016 with Towcester being announced as the new venue for the Greyhound showpiece until 2018. The new home for both 2019 & 2020 was Nottingham before being moved back to Towcester in 2021 when local trainer Patrick Janssens was successful.


    • Greyhound St Leger - Wembley and then Wimbledon were previous venues for the Greyhound St Leger up until 2016 when Wimbledon closed. The latest and current host is Perry Barr in Birmingham and as with the horse racing version of the classic, it's a contest for the 'stayers' over 710 metres. The Greyhound St Leger usually takes place in November, trainer Mark Wallis has enjoyed plenty of St Leger success winning the trophy on five occasions since 2009 including the 2016 and 2017 renewals so keep an eye out for any of his contenders this year.


    • Coral Essex Vase - Run over a distance of 575 metres at Romford and recognised as one of the top 6 bend events in the Greyhound year. The heats start usually towards the end of November with the final taking place on a Saturday night in early December. The great Ballyregan Bob won the Essex Vase back in 1985 and still holds the track record for this distance today. Romford or Yarmouth based handlers have won the Coral Essex Vase in five of the previous six renewals.
