So we got to watch the dogs in the 'exercise' yard (every second photo I took seemed to have a dog relieving themselves - obviously they get nervous before a race!)
This was our favourite - I'm not a greyhound lover, but it was a beautiful looking dog.
Heading around to the boxes - it was a long walk for the trainers, the dogs seemed to handle it fine :)
And they're off and racing...
Unfortunately our favourite was just a pretty boy not a runner and came in last...
Catching them at the end of the race.
Since it was a fun event, there were also raffles & chocolate wheels, some fun running races for the kids and even a visit from the big man in the red suit handing out lollies and ice-blocks.
It was certainly an interesting day. Billy really enjoyed it and wants to know when the next one is on! (But then, that may have been the free lollies and ice-blocks!)
