Adelaide Greyhound Racing

Adelaide greyhound racing is becoming more and more popular every day. Greyhound racing is a sport in which dogs chase a lure (an artificial rabbit) around a track and the first dog to get the lure is declared the winner. The Adelaide greyhounds are protected by the GRSA (Greyhound Racing SA Limited), which is a group that closely monitors and regulates the races to ensure that they are both ethical and humane.

The Adelaide Cup Selection Panel chooses the top 16 greyhounds from the group of nominations. A minimum of four SA greyhounds will be chosen for the Top 16. Greyhounds with victories in a Group 3 Race in South Australia or an Open Group 1 race are automatically included in the Top 16 as well as the winner of the New Year Sprint. Several heats are run and the final group of greyhounds is chosen for the final Adelaide Cup race. In 1956 the first Adelaide Cup was held at Waterloo Corner. Oakland Chief, owned by Fred Grimes, won the first ever Adelaide Cup. After several moves the Adelaide Cup found its true home in South Australia’s Greyhound Racing headquarters, Angle Park.
