Live Racing to End at Mobile Greyhound Park

7/31/2017

Mobile, AL-(July 31, 2017) In response to declining market demand, Mobile Greyhound Park (MGP) will eliminate live races at our park at the end of August. We will continue to offer simulcast of races originating from other locations. In 1991 there were 62 active greyhound tracks unsupported by other forms of gaming. Today, Mobile Greyhound Park is only one of two. Of course, this will bring changes for team members and kennels currently serving MGP.
 
As the changes bring a reduction in demand for staffing, we are fully prepared to assist each of our team members with locating and applying for opportunities at other Wind Creek Hospitality facilities including Pensacola Greyhound Park and Wind Creek Casino & Hotel Atmore. Our HR professionals are meeting with each team member to help coordinate a transition plan suited to the individual. All MGP team members are well-trained and experienced with excellent customer service skills; we do not expect they will experience any difficulty finding other suitable employment.
 
We also have plans in place to assist kennel owners with relocation, adoption, and ongoing care of the approximately 400 greyhounds currently providing service to MGP. Some of the animals may be moved to many different tracks around the country including our Pensacola Greyhound Park. Some will be adopted into loving homes. We routinely place over 600 greyhounds each year through Mobile Greyhound Pet Adoption Kennel and we have relationships with approximately a dozen other adoption agencies across the country that will help with placement.
 
We have implemented a program which will support kennels with care, feeding, housing, and veterinary services while each greyhound is matched to a suitable new environment. We do not foresee any significant challenges with finding appropriate living arrangements for these star athletes. Anyone interested in adopting a greyhound can phone The Mobile Greyhound Pet Adoption Kennel at 251-653-5000 Ext 102 for details.
