Why Greyhound Racing

Greyhound Racing is action packed, fast paced and thrilling to be part of.  It makes up one of the three main racing codes in SA and it's no surprise that our share is growing. Our facilities are equal to any other racing or sporting complex in South Australia and we have a total of seven racing tracks throughout SA.

  • As there are only 8 dogs per race, it's easy to back a winner. Races start every 15 to 20 minutes with meetings held across Australia most days of the week so there's always live action.
  • Races only last around 30 seconds so if you've picked the winner, you'll see a quick return.
  • No human intervention.

How to bet

Bet Types
Win betting
This bet type is simple and popular. Simply pick the runner you think will win the race. 
Place betting

A place bet means if the greyhound you select comes 1st, 2nd or 3rd in the race where there are seven dogs or more you will win.

Trifecta betting
Pick the greyhounds you think will finish 1st, 2nd and 3rd. 
The Quinella bet type requires you to pick the two greyhounds that will finish 1st or 2nd in a race, in any order. 
Similar to the Quinella, you are required to pick the two greyhounds that will finish 1st or 2nd in a race, however, the difference is you have to exactly pick the finishing order. 
First 4
For the First 4, you are required to pick the greyhounds that will finish 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th in a race in the correct order. 
The Quaddie requires you to pick the winners of four races set out by TAB Sportsbet in order for you to collect a dividend. Due to the nature of the bet and the fact it is difficult to select four winners, most of the time the Quaddie dividends are lucrative. 
Fixed Odds
Pre-post Fixed Odds betting (open a few days, and sometimes weeks in advance) is offered on all major races throughout the year, while most day-to-day meetings carry Fixed Odds with betting opening 10 minutes prior to each race.
