greyhound racing ends at Victoryland

Due to declining revenues and increased political pressure, Victoryland Greyhound Park will hold its last and final race on May 14th.

Victoryland COO Lewis Benefield has issued a written statement regarding the track closure: “Economic realities make it impossible for us to continue offering live racing after the Juvenile Futurity. Greyhound racing will resume when we can again offer the electronic bingo games which for many years subsidized the cost of live racing.”

Victoryland’s track closure is expected to result in 200 job losses.
