Texas

Number of Tracks: 1 (rotating schedule)

Summary:

Greyhound racing had previously ceased in Texas with the closure of Gulf Greyhound Park in December 2015.2 However, in a deal between the industry and the Texas Racing Commission, a rotating schedule was implemented which permits the racetracks to exploit a legal technicality allowing for year-round simulcast wagering at all three racetracks.3 According to Texas Rules of Racing Chapter 321, a license to operate a pari-mutuel racetrack “includes as a part of its privileges the privilege of conducting pari-mutuel wagering on simulcast races.”4 As long as tracks have been granted race dates in the future, even three years in the future, they can legally conduct the more lucrative simulcast wagering on dog races during the interim.
