Waiting for minimum critic reviews


The History of Greyhound Racing In New England relates the story of the rise and fall of dog racing in this area. At one time there were 12 dog tracks in five New England states and the sport drew huge crowds to watch the nation’s leading Hall of Fame greyhounds compete in the most prestigious stakes races. The sport flourished for more than six decades here but outside forces beyond its control led to its demise. Today there are no dog tracks in New England.
This book traces the rapid rise and the slow decline of the sport and analyzes the reasons that caused it to fail.
