2021 Ekka Greyhound Sweepstakes Competition

LET YOUR GREY HAVE ITS DAY

GREYHOUND SWEEPSTAKES COMPETITION

EKKA, SUNDAY 8 AUGUST 2021

Entries for the Greyhound Sweepstakes at Ekka are now open! Entrants will enjoy the pride and camaraderie in showing, and they’ll also have the chance to win prizemoney, trophies, sashes, and the sought-after Winner’s Rug for Best of Breed.

Entries close Sunday 11 July at 5pm.

Competition start time: 12pm

Dogs must be benched from 8.45am. Gates open at 6am.

The aim of the Racing Queensland Greyhound Sweepstakes is to promote the Racing Greyhound from puppy, preparation for racing, racing and of course retirement. Also, the greyhounds’ versatility, suitability and adaptability to retirement into a forever home, outside of the Racing Industry.

Parking

Exhibitors with a vehicle and dog trailer can park in the designated canine exhibitor parking area located on Alexandria Street, open from 6am. You will be required to pre-book parking once entries open and permits will be issued on a first in first served basis.

Exhibitors entering with a vehicle without a trailer will be able to park in the King Street Car Park (max height 2.2m). Please note, parking in the King Street Car Park cannot be pre-booked - there are 275 parking spaces available each day of show. For vehicles higher than 2.2m, exhibitors will need to book trailer parking.

Junior Handler

There has been an addition of a Junior Handler class for Racing Greyhounds. This will be held after the Sweepstakes. The exhibitor and their guardian will receive an entry ticket into Ekka.

Appearance Fees

Racing Queensland will pay an appearance fee of $60 per greyhound entered in the Greyhound Swepstakes to be paid via bank transfer to designated exhibitor.
