Greyhound racing at Coral – be top betting dog!
The first ever modern greyhound race in the UK took place at Belle Vue in Manchester on July 24, 1926, in front of 1,700 spectators. Tracks then opened in London and the sport has since flourished. There are now tracks throughout the length and breadth of the country, and the sport has witnessed some incredible performances from the likes of the legendary Mick The Miller and more recently dual English Derby winner Westmead Hawk whose flying finish was a site to behold. It is a frenetic and action packed sport which gets the adrenalin pumping, and there are fewer fantastic sights than a greyhound in full flight - except that same greyhound you have money on!
Storm out of the traps with a great selection of markets
At Coral we offer markets on dog races up and down the country, from Sunderland to Brighton, with great odds on everything from the nightly race cards to top tier events like the Coral-sponsored Regency at Hove and Essex Vase at Romford, the Springbok Hurdle at Wimbledon, Puppy Derby at Monmore and of course the English Greyhound Derby - the most prestigious event racing calendar. The sport is live each night on Racing Post Greyhound TV from Tuesday to Sunday (Live on Sky channel 468 and Freesat channel 250) with Coral offering early prices on the races covered. Coral also offer Best Price Guaranteed on ALL UK greyhound races. If the odds get bigger after you place you bet, we'll pay out at the bigger price. If they get smaller, we'll pay out at the price you took. Another plus is that you back a winner at 2/1 or bigger on any Live race covered by Sky Greyhounds you'll qualify for a FREE BET to match your stake up to €/£25. Your account will be credited automatically by 12 noon the following day, and can be used on any dog race on that day. It's a barking made package, and if there was a Crufts for bookmakers Coral would be the Best in Show.
