And … they’re off : Live greyhound racing coming back to Valley Race Park

HARLINGEN — Seven years after the dogs packed up and left, greyhound racing is returning to Valley Race Park.

Texas Racing Commission officials confirmed yesterday the park has been cleared to resume a full slate of live dog racing. The park has requested and been granted 36 racing days.

Employees at Valley Race Park say it isn’t known which dates the greyhounds will run.

But when they do, races will be held four days a week, with 10 races planned each day.
