RACING & THE AMERICAN COMMUNITY

There are currently 40 greyhound tracks operating in 12 different states

Greyhound racing contributes millions of dollars to state and county governments as well as charities. It is estimated that the greyhound industry only has contributed over $2 million annually

More than 15 million people visit the 48 racetracks resulting in more than $100 million in revenue for state and county governments

More than $2 billion will be wagered each year

A track capable of sustaining a pari-mutuel handle of more than $500,000 will employ a minimum of 600 people. This figure does not include "area" economic impact for restaurants, motels, gasoline sales, etc.
