There are currently no operational greyhound tracks in Colorado. At one point there were five tracks throughout the state: Mile High Kennel Club in Denver, Pueblo Greyhound Park in Commerce City, Cloverleaf Kennel Club in Loveland, Rocky Mountain Greyhound Park in Colorado Springs and Interstate Kennel Club in Byers.1 By 2008, all had closed for live racing.2 In May 2013, GREY2K USA led a coalition of animal groups to pass a prohibition on dog racing, which was signed into law by Governor John Hickenlooper.3 Ten months later, the bill was signed into law on March 10, 2014 by Governor John Hickenlooper.4
