Albion Park Greyhounds
Greyhound racing has been a popular sport all over the world since 1912, when its official modern format had been created. The creator, Owen Patrick Smith designed a circular or oval track with a lure that dogs can chase. The lure is usually an artificial rabbit or a hare that is taken across the track. Each race is held for about 15 minutes with a fixed number of dogs in every race. For a more exhilarating experience, race courses feature these races back to back. Australia has one of the biggest markets for greyhound racing in the world. The Australian Greyhound Racing Association governs all the races that are held around the country and help promote the sport. Gambling on these races is a very important feature of the sports as well and online gambling facilities have revolutionized the gambling experience.
Many subdivisions for Australia’s provinces and districts have been established and feature numerous race courses, trotting farms and race tracks for greyhounds. The dogs are given kennels and maintained by the trainers that these associations provide. The objectives of the national association include the commercial promotion of the sport, maintenance of the dogs, finding homes that would adopt the dogs, feature international and national shows, regulate race courses and keep a control on the betting activities as well as avoid corruption in the races. One of the most recent issues that have come up with the association is the drugs that the dogs were given for better performance on the track. This act was then criminalized and the dogs were tested and new laws made to penalize the trainers and owners of the dog in question.
Greyhounds are the fastest breed of dogs in the world, having reached records of up to 45 km/h. They have a very muscular structure with flexible spines that help them sprint longer distances than other dogs. Known for their very opinionated nature, they cannot be forced to do anything without their own will, hence the lure that is used for the races. Although there are famous for their temperament, they are known to get very attached to their owners and trainers. Their maintenance is fairly simple since they have very short hair and dot require the same amount of exercise that other dogs need.
Gambling and greyhound racing have been associated with each other since racing initially started. Today, it is a very well organized facility that is provided in most race courses around the world. In the United States, gambling is strictly forbidden in all states except Nevada and Delaware. In Europe, gambling is not criminalized but is regulated by associations around the continent. Australia has much more lenient laws regarding betting in dog racing and every race track features a gambling centre where bookmakers are available for punters. Betting is now available online with a number of online bookmakers and websites offering sports books and tips and tutorials for those interested in learning how to gamble.

The benefits of betting systems in greyhound races
Many bettors and punters around the globe work towards devising a betting system that would make the probability of their winnings much higher than it is. This is not completely possible, but the advent of many betting systems today have made it a lot easier to predict the accurate outcome of the races. Betting systems are usually employed in handicap races, where it is a lot easier to exploit the previous outcomes in order to place more accurate bets. Betting on greyhounds is a lot easier than other gambling activities and provide a lot more benefits.
When you visit a race and get the program that features the day’s race agenda, you will get an idea about the races that are being held that day, the names of the dogs and their histories. With this information you can plan out your wager beforehand. For example if one of the dogs has won around 5 or more races before this race, many people will be picking that dog as a favorite. This would definitely reduce the wager winnings, since most race tracks offer pari-mutuel betting. Choosing the dog that didn’t win in previous races only increases your chances of winning a higher amount.
