What Does The Future Hold For Greyhound Racing? Does it Even Have A Future?

The future of greyhound racing in the U.K. at the moment is looking somewhat bleak with Sky Sports not currently commenting on if they will be renewing their TV coverage after December 2012.

Jonathan Kay from the Racing Post discusses this in more depth on his weblog and is well worth the read!

About Me

Greyhound Racing UK was created in January 2011 by Stephen Smith and was designed to provide all the latest greyhound racing news for all major category greyhound races! I have been following greyhound racing now for over fifteen years and have seen just about everything, just about…! My aim with Greyhound Racing UK is to share my knowledge with other greyhound racing enthusiasts and try to give help and advise where i can.

I will also try to provide some tips and selection advice for the main greyhound racing events during the calendar year via my Facebook page, but please remember that my selection advise is purely based on my own knowledge of the greyhounds in question and any information I receive from third party’s will be clearly stated as such!

 I do also part own a greyhound called Bubbly Impact through the Champagne Club and I will keep you informed of his progress as well as any further greyhounds I may decide to invest in.

Greyhound Racing UK is not connected with any official governing bodies and any views or opinions expressed are of mine and mine alone unless otherwise stated.
