Oregon

Number of Tracks: 0

Summary:

There are no operational greyhound tracks in Oregon. Greyhound racing itself, however, remains legal in this state. Dog racing in Oregon began in 1933, when the Legislature passed a bill to permit pari-mutuel wagering in the state.1 Racing was held on a seasonal basis, and in 2003 GREY2K USA led a coalition to prevent the expansion of racing to a year-round activity.2 Magna Entertainment, the company that ran Multnomah Greyhound Park since 2001, announced that it was allowing its lease to expire on December 31, 2004.3
