More Woes for Tucson Greyhound Track

Posted By on Sat, Sep 16, 2006 at 10:11 AM

I'm giving the Arizona Daily Star a flower for this article about how the track can no longer (forever, I hope!) have the signal for off-track horse betting.

According to the article, Tucson Greyhound Park has become increasingly reliant on off-track-betting (OTB) revenue and makes more money from OTB horse racing ($15 million) than the $6 million on dog racing.

Perhaps this is the beginning of the end of dog racing in Tucson. As a greyhound adopter and activist, I can only hope.
