The North West Greyhound Racing Club conducts greyhound races every Tuesday afternoon.
A major highlight on our racing calendar is the Group 3 Ladbrokes Devonport Chase held in December each year. This event attracts a wide interest from the public, media and industry both interstate and intrastate.
Race day admission is free.
The first Devonport greyhound meeting run by the NWGRC was held inside the trotting track at the Devonport Showgrounds.
It was held on Thursday April 3 1952, conducting 10 races, all with 10 starters. The grass track raced over one distance, 465 yards.
The winner of the first race was Franken Boy (box 3). The first feature event was held on the same night and was called the Rainbow Cup. It was won by Glentude (box 2) the 6/4 ($2.50) favourite.
