Live greyhound racing is prohibited in New Hampshire. At one time there were three greyhound tracks in the state: Seabrook Greyhound Park, the Lodge at Belmont and Hinsdale Greyhound Park.1 In 2008, the Hinsdale track declared bankruptcy and turned its gambling license over to the state.2 By the following year, both the Lodge at Belmont and Seabrook Greyhound Park had ceased live racing after a state budget bill went into effect allowing them to stop racing but continue offering simulcast wagering.3 The Greyhound Protection Act, a bill supported by GREY2K USA, was introduced in 2009 to outlaw live racing entirely. In July 2010, Governor John Lynch signed the bill into law.4
