SOUTHLAND GREYHOUND RACING CLUB

 

Situated at Ascot Park, the only tri-code (all three racing codes) venue in New Zealand, the Southland Club has also recently converted its racing surface from grass to loam.  The track provides all greyhounds competing with an 'even chance at the spoils' and the surface itself, with the beautiful sand sourced from a nearby beach, is very 'kind' to all competing greyhounds.  Another Club with a real emphasis on 'local flavour' and encouragement in participation.
