Greyhound Racing

2 min. readlast update: 12.10.2019


All our general rules apply to both horse and greyhound racing, exceptions being when they are superseded by the rules below, which are specifically applicable to greyhound racing.

Bets on named greyhounds which do not run will be made void. If only the trap number is selected, then the reserve will be substituted.

Bets are accepted win or each way at starting price, show price or early price where available.

Place only bets are not accepted and if taken in error will be void.

If a greyhound is withdrawn from a race, bets placed prior to the withdrawal at Early or Show prices will be settled at Starting Price (SP).

Reserve Greyhounds Customers have two options when placing bets on greyhound races. You can either place the bet by trap number or by dog name. If placing a bet by trap number, then your bet will be settled on the trap regardless of whether or not a reserve is running. If you place a bet by dog name and the dog is a non-runner, your bet will be void.

Acceptance of bets Bets placed after the official "off" time will be voided irrespective of whether the bet wins or loses.

Tote Bets We do not accept tote bets on greyhound racing. Any such bets accepted in error will be settled at the starting price equivalent.

Place terms:

In races of 5-7 runners we pay 1/4 odds 1st and 2nd places.

In races of 8 runners, we pay 1/5 odds 1st, 2nd and 3rd places.

Where races have 4 runners or less, each way bets go all on to win.

Re-Scheduled Greyhound Races Bets placed on a void race, which is re-scheduled to be run later on the same day, will be settled as follows:

  • Single Bets (Including Single Forecasts and Tricasts); All bets stand, unless a refund is requested prior to the off of the re-scheduled race.
  • Show Prices and Early Prices; Bets taken at prices on a Void Race will revert to S.P. for the re-scheduled race.
  • Multiple Bets; All selections in Void Races within multiple bets will stand for the re-scheduled race. In the event that the race is not re-scheduled, all selections in that race will be treated as non-runners within multiple bets.

Greyhound Specials In the event of any non-runner, match and special bets will be void.
