Star Sports English Greyhound Derby
The Greyhound Derby is the most prestigious race in the world of greyhound racing. It possesses a rich history, with the inaugural competition dating all the way back to 1927. While it may have a rich history, it also possesses a very bright future at its new home of Towcester Racecourse.
On 1st July 2017, six greyhounds will line up chasing a winner’s purse of £175,000, and total prize-money for the event will eclipse £350,000, making it the richest greyhound competition in the world. It will take the winner approximately 29 seconds to complete the 500m course at Towcester and that equates to over £6,000 per second.
