Trainers from all over the country have entered greyhounds for Sunderland Greyhound Stadium’s biggest prize of the year, part of a terrific festival of racing this month (July).
Stadium managers expect some of the country’s best greyhounds to descend on Sunderland to compete for their share of the £65,000 purse in four races, the Festival Flyer, the Puppy Plate, the Grand Prix and the main event, the Classic.
The semi-finals take place at the stadium in Newcastle Road on Saturday 9th July and the finals night on Wednesday 13th July.
Each night’s racing will be accompanied by the stadium’s usual package of drinks and meals deals for racegoers.
