Now gather round you punters and bookies here tonight, We want to draw attention to an important oversight, There's a wonder dog in question made coursing history, This hound was named CHIEF HAVOC and is buried by this tree Born a real Australian, won races by the score, With a heart as big as Phar Lap and the brains of trainers galore,
Tonight we all should toast him, a son of GUNNEDAH.

A brave and honest coursing dog, as good ones mostly are, Tonight we should remember him, ​as all here will agree They never breed them better than the old hound by the tree.
And sometimes on a race night, when the bunny starts to whirr, And the traps spring open I'm sure the old CHIEF stirsAnd listens fill the punters have all gone home, Too soon, Then he has a final gallop by the pale light of the moon.

For far too long the Greyhound Fraternity has been seen as a type of Closed Club. We at Gunnedah Greyhound
Racing Club ​have now turned that perception around, by encouraging Public Attendance & a Family Atmosphere where a Day
​at the Races brings on a whole knew meaning. The Gunnedah Greyhound Track belongs to the community to enjoy. We have
​​struggled hard within our region to change the fore-mentioned perception, & going by the recent years attendance, the public are now
re-discovering the Social Event of Greyhound Racing.

We have been overwhelmed with the support of Local Businesses & Groups by way of Sponsorship, enabling us to provide the added
​facilities ​to allow your Day Out with us be a memorable one.​​ Without this Support from the Local Business Community we would find
​ourselves battling ​a economic environment ​​that would make our task of providing Greyhound Racing Entertainment almost impossible.

Therefore, we value our Sponsors above all else & are always open to accepting new interest for sponsorship to enable us to progress
​forward. ​We extend a huge Thank You to those who currently Support the Gunnedah Greyhound Racing Club.​​

We would like to extend a Warm Welcome & a  Invitation to ​all to experience something you have been missing out on. Plan your
