All the Arizona dog tracks are closed and greyhound racing is illegal in the state.
At one time there were five operational greyhound tracks in the state: Apache Greyhound Park, Black Canyon Greyhound Park, Phoenix Greyhound Park, Tucson Greyhound Park, and Yuma Greyhound Park. The last track to close was Tucson Greyhound Park, which held its last race on June 25, 2016.1 Within days, hundreds of greyhounds were released for adoption.2
In 2016, House Bill 2127 to outlaw dog racing was brought jointly by GREY2K USA Worldwide and Tucson Greyhound Park. The measure passed unanimously in the House and Senate.3 On May 13, 2016, Governor Doug Ducey signed our prohibition into law.4
