There are three racing tracks in Hungary; the Alsonemedi Greyhound Park, the Isaszeg greyhound track and the Rábapatona race track. All of these tracks are oval with sand running surfaces and conduct races of various lengths.
In 2012 a total of 182 races were held between the three tracks.1 As of October 31, 2013 there had been 139 races held in the country.2 Like several of the other European countries with non-commercial racing, various sighthound breeds participate but all races are segregated by breed. The greyhounds are not housed at the track, but instead are brought to the site by their owners to race.
Hungary follows the International Kennel Federation rules for sighthound racing and the Hungarian Kennel Club Greyhound Racing and Breeding Rules.3
There is no wagering on greyhound races in Hungary.
