History of Dubuque Greyhound Track

Dubuque Greyhound Track opened in June 1, 1985. But a year earlier, the citizens of Dubuque, Iowa agreed to back the racetrack with a bond issue and stake their property tax dollars should the project fail.

From the start, Dubuque Greyhound Track was an overwhelming success. The first class kennel roster included the likes of, The Discolo Kennel, The Connell Kennel, The Henry Kennel, The Nova Kennel and The Padrta Kennel.

Dubuque Greyhound Track also had a stellar list of Trainers headed by then trainer of the year Stacie Castells.

Dubuque Greyhound Track was the very first not-for-profit racetrack in the country, with all the profits earmarked for local charitable distribution. Dubuque Greyhound Track donated $2.87 million to various charities in 2004.

Other jurisdictions closely watched the Dubuque Greyhound Track project. The customer relations standard set at Dubuque Greyhound Track were emulated by the greyhound racing industry. Dubuque Greyhound Track officials are often invited as speakers at industry conferences.
