2017 Annual Gala Awards Dinner

The Amazing Chase

The greyhound Amazing Chase series has got underway to a flying start with strong nominations throughout the country being received for it.

The mouth-watering match up of four 527m match races between two greyhounds racing paw to paw over a 40-minute period, when $30,500 in stakes must be won, will occur at the Manukau Stadium on July 30.

Not only are they racing against the other greyhound, they’re also racing against the clock.

30 greyhounds will now chase the clock in regional qualifying trials which will be held at the Manukau (527m), Hatrick (520m) and Addington (520m) tracks from 23 June until 23 July.

The three quickest from Manukau, plus the two quickest from each of Hatrick and Addington will get a placing in one of the four Manukau hosted final matches. The last position in the final will be drawn by ballot from the Hatrick and Addington third fastest times.  

The nominated greyhounds range from exciting Maidens through to Group 1 winners.

The table below will be updated each Monday morning during the qualifying period.

Only the fastest times at each venue will be published in the leaderboards.  More detail on the individual greyhound's form can be found by clicking on their name.
