August 28, 2012News from Curraheen Park Greyhound Stadium – August 28th 2012
This Saturday September 1st we are looking forward to the Greyhound and Petworld A1 stake final. The final of this 36 dog stake has a huge €5,000 up for grabs. We will be welcoming special guest Gary Wiltshire on the night of the final. Wilthire, who was made famous when he lost a million pounds to various bookmaker organisations and punters all in one day at Ascot , will be meeting and greeting all those at the track on the night. He is now one of the top independent bookmakers operating in the betting ring and can be seen often on sports channels commenting on the races.
And that’s not the only big race taking place this Saturday as the whole racecard is sponsored on the night offering big prize money for every individual race. The final of The Gain and Greyhound & Petworld Open 330 and the final of the Jerry Woods and Greyhound & Petworld A5 stake are just two of the major five final races featuring on Saturdays racecard.
Based in Abbeyfeale, Co. Limerick, Greyhound & Petworld supply everything for the Greyhound enthusiast – all under one roof. Having only recently opened their trackside shop in Curraheen Park Greyhound Stadium, owners Dominic Magnone and Kathleen Murphy have been in the business for over 18 years. “It’s great to be back in Cork again since March. We’ve had such a fantastic response from the Cork owners and trainers, we’re delighted to be in a position to support them back with this sweepstake” said Dominic.
