Gippsland Festival of Racing

Sporting Events

26 Dec 2020 to 6 Feb 2021 Annual Event

The Gippsland Festival of Racing celebrates a high point on the calendars of greyhound-loving punters everywhere. During December through to February, events run, at Sale, Warragul and Cranbourne racecourses. These events will showcase some of the best greyhounds from across Victoria.

Nowhere comes alive more than Sale Greyhound Racing Club on Boxing Day with the quickest of greyhounds racing on the track, for the coveted Sale Cup. This vibrant atmosphere continues in Warragul in the new year for the highly anticipated Warragul Cup. There’s a particular atmosphere around the Warragul cup, and when the dogs run, you can ‘feel’ the excitement around the track.

Cranbourne follows in February with highly anticipated Cranbourne Cup. Watch all the action or be trackside as yet again another racing superstar emerges and new dreams come true.

This year will be a little different due to the COVID-19 restrictions. For the first time, all events will be ticketed to comply with on-course crowd restrictions due to COVID -19 regulations. Greyhound race lovers can watch all the action live and free on the Watchdog app or their live Facebook feed. Be part of the action, see the dogs fly and hold your breath for the winner to cross the line.
