The Agua Caliente Racetrack of Tijuana is the last operational greyhound track in Mexico. Located in the Mexican state of Baja California, the track first began offering greyhound racing in 1927.1 Though governed by local authorities, Caliente is considered part of the United States racing circuit. Races are conducted six days a week, and in 2019, 4,683 races were held at the track.2

Nearly all of the greyhounds racing at Caliente are American born.3 The vast majority of these dogs start and finish their racing careers at Caliente, racing frequently on just one or two days of rest.4 There are as many as 400 greyhounds kenneled at the facility at any given time.5
