Ekka a great showcase for greyhounds

The Racing Queensland Ekka Sweepstakes are almost upon us with entries now open for the 2022 edition.

The annual event gives participants and greyhound lovers alike the opportunity to showcase their canine athletes away from the racetrack.

Entrants will grace the show-ring at the Royal Brisbane Show on Sunday, 7 August and be judged on their appearance, build, and formation. 

The aims of the sweepstakes are to celebrate the breed, displaying the beauty, athleticism, and nature of greyhound, introducing them to a wider audience on the Ekka stage.

With increased prizemoney, trophies, and the coveted Winners Rug for Best in Breed on offer, it has got all the makings of a great event.  Furthermore, for the first time Racing Queensland will be paying appearance fees of $100 per greyhound that is entered into the event.

On the day, greyhounds will be benched in Stockman’s Rest with great exposure to the public as they walk by. When it is time for the greyhound sweepstakes, entrants will make their way into the show ring by class, where they will parade their dog and be judged by an experienced judge with knowledge of the breed.  

Entries are online and can be found via the Ekka website or through Racing Queensland’s website at: https://www.ekka.com.au/competitions/animals/canine/.  Entries close on Friday, 8 July.
