News from the Tracks and Greyhound Racing Meetings Coming Up This August!

2016 has already been a big year for greyhound betting and racing. The sport actually celebrated its 90th birthday on July 24th, with racing tracks across the country holding special events on the day. The first race, held in 1926, saw 1,700 spectators gather at Belle Vue Stadium, where seven greyhounds raced the oval circuit, making it the first ever modern greyhound race in the United Kingdom.

The same Belle Vue Stadium also announced recently that BAPP – one of the largest suppliers of nuts and bolts in the country – will be sponsoring the Scurry Gold Cup and Northern Flat, two events which will be held in mid-September. The finals of the events will be held on October 1st, when Belle Vue will host an official 90th birthday party.

Lots of greyhound racing events are due to be held sooner than the official October birthday party, however. Throughout August, Brighton and Hove Greyhound Stadium will be hosting racing events and Sunday lunches in their Skyline restaurant, with special Thursday events offering free admission to attendees.

The month of August will also see Nottingham Greyhound Stadium be hosting events every Friday, Saturday and Monday, with all events being covered by Coral. Bet on the first out of the traps or the overall winner, and Coral offers great odds and an easy online betting experience. Nottingham Greyhound Stadium is an extremely popular place for greyhound racing regulars or those new to the sport, with dining and entertainment deals available throughout the year.

Owlerton Greyhound Stadium of Sheffield and the National Speedway Stadium of Manchester also have August events held during the weekends, making August 2016 a jam packed month for the sporting and greyhound betting calendar. All major cities in the country will be celebrating the landmark year with massive greyhound betting opportunities.

August will also see the Monmore Gold Cup – the stadium’s premier competition of both the newest and most established talent on its standard 480m track. There will be six Heats, three Semi-Finals and one Grand Final – all of which Coral is offering great betting odds for.

Greyhound racing fans shouldn’t despair if they can’t make any of these prestigious events this August. Not only can you bet without attending the events, Coral provides virtual greyhounds 24/7 as well as live screenings on its website of all the latest events. So this year, you can celebrate 90 years of this incredible British sport whether you’re travelling the country for the Monmore Gold Cup, Dundalk events or races at the famous Belle Vue Stadium, or even staying at home and taking advantage of great odds.
