Hatrick is one of New Zealand’s most popular greyhound raceways. With more than 100 race meetings held every season, it is the hub of greyhound betting on the Central Districts.
It is also one of the most popular betting markets at online bookmakers. Punters are able to place a variety of bets on races held at the track once they have deposited money into their bookmaker accounts.

The New Zealand Greyhound Racing Association oversees the sport, and it runs a charity that looks after or rehomes more than 200 retired racing dogs every year.
