The Greyhound Derby is the most prestigious race in the world of greyhound racing. It possesses a rich history, with the inaugural competition dating all the way back to 1927. While it may have a rich history, it also possesses a very bright future at its new home of Towcester Racecourse.
On 1st July 2017, six greyhounds will line up chasing a winner’s purse of £175,000, and total prize-money for the event will eclipse £350,000, making it the richest greyhound competition in the world. It will take the winner approximately 29 seconds to complete the 500m course at Towcester and that equates to over £6,000 per second.
The Greyhound Derby 2017 final night is a great occasion, the best greyhounds from the UK and Ireland will do battle in 14 races over various distances. Be part of this spectacular event and make sure you are here to witness history in the making.
