By definition, the term "pari-mutuel" tells the bettor that this is a place where they can bet among each other, not against the house. The track retains a percentage for handling the wagers. The track makes the same percentage regardless if the bettor wins or loses, thus providing a level playing field for all players. Phoenix Greyhound Park in Phoenix, Southwestern has a wagering menu which includes win, place, show, exacta, quiniela, trifecta, superfecta, twin-trifecta and tri-super wagering, providing a wide variety of wagering options for beginners and seasoned race-goers alike. Phoenix Greyhound Park is proud to support Arizona Adopt A Greyhound, Inc. (AAGI) a non-profit agency founded in 1990 by Cheryl Lawless, to find loving homes for retired greyhound racers. Through funding, volunteer and staff support, to the dedication of a permanent adoption facility located on-track, Phoenix Greyhound Park hopes to ensure that the greyhound pet becomes as popular as the sport and to continue in support of the work started by Cheryl.
Today, over 5,000 greyhounds have raced into the hearts and homes of Arizona's families. Cheryl's successor, Kiersten Kerr, works with a small dedicated staff and lots of hard working volunteers to place nearly 500 former racers each year into loving homes like yours.
