Ipswich Greyhounds Crucial To QLD Racing

February 16th, 2011

The Ipswich greyhounds are a vital hub for racing in the South-East Queensland region. Servicing a community well into the hundreds of thousands of people, Ipswich is certainly a city both capable and willing to host major greyhound racing events, often with substantial prize pools.

The track is based in the Ipswich Showgrounds, an ideal spot with many of the required facilities already on-site. It also means getting to and from the Ipswich greyhounds is incredibly easy through private or public transport.

The Track itself is relatively small with tight turns making it a fairly technical track to negotiate. This means locally trained dogs often do quite well when racing on this surface. It’s also a track where size isn’t everything and the smaller more agile dogs are often able to take the turns at a greater speed than their larger, stronger counterparts without running wide.

It is important to keep all of this in mind when betting on the Ipswich greyhounds to try and pick a dog you think satisfies all your criteria. Every punter has a different style and looks for specific aspects of the form guide so when betting you should use an agent giving you the most options possible. That’s why it’s best to use Luxbet, an online bookie giving you everything you need to be successful, all you have to do is pick the winner!
