Meanwhile, bookmakers and simulcast facilities that specialize in greyhound and horse racing (also exempt) can do so with ease.
You can also bet on greyhound racing with offshore sportsbooks. The UIGEA was created to stop/slow down offshore operators. Nevertheless, these bookmakers still serve American customers in some states.
Greyhound racing has an interesting history that dates back to the late eighteenth century. But “history” may be the appropriate word for this sport now.
Most states have banned hound racing. Over half the states that do allow it don’t even feature an active racetrack.
Combine this with an aging fanbase, and you have a sport that doesn’t feature much of a shelf life. By my estimates, greyhound racing will be finished within 10-20 years.
