Adelaide Cup

The Adelaide Cup is run once a year at Angle Park and is the biggest greyhound racing event in Southern Australia.  Dogs from all over the country as well as Southern Australia compete for a total prize purse of $125 000 as well as various trophies.

The cup is held in January each year and is looked forward to by both punters and trainers from around the country.  There are a number of races on the day of the cup, ranging from maiden races for new Dogs to the final main race of the day, which is for experienced chasers.

A minimum of four local dogs is chosen to enter the field with the total of the field being 16 dogs.  The dogs are eliminated via various heats, resulting in a final race of a field of 8 entrants.  Punters watch the dogs over the elimination races, getting a feel and idea of the runner’s potential and capabilities.

Angle Park Online

Angle Park is a popular racetrack and betting on the races is available at online greyhound betting sites as well as at the actual track.  Many sites offer betting on various races with various fixed odds per dog. Online betting is especially useful for those who cannot be at the track but are following the races or a favourite chaser.   Betting sites can also be accessed via a mobile device, such as a smartphone, from anywhere in the country such as the local pub or a friend’s house. This means that you can place a wager from wherever you are.

Betting online also provides a variety of other services, such as pedigrees, histories and training of the dogs.  Knowing a dog’s history and pedigree is beneficial when placing a wager on it, as both of these play a part in how well the dog runs.  Just like horse racing, a bit of knowledge before placing a wager helps to produce a successful outcome. Online sites also offer tips on upcoming races, but bear in mind that the favourite dog will have lower odds, which means that if you bet on it, your payout will be lower than it would have been should you have taken a chance on an underdog.
