The biggest Greyhound event ever, ‘Greyhound 2000, A Millennium Celebration’, will take place in Newmarket from 10-14 December.

Greyhound 2000 will bring together showing, racing and coursing and includes:

  • The first 128-dog coursing stake for more than 100 years.
  • A full day’s pedigree greyhound showing, including the first ever Champion Greyhound of the Year competition,
  • An evening’s track racing at nearby Mildenhall,
  • An exhibition of famous greyhounds and their associated memorabilia dating back into the 19th century.

    Alliance chief executive Richard Burge described the event as unique: “We encourage people to go and see country sports such as this for themselves, especially if they have never been before.”
