Greyhound racing in Vietnam now takes place at the Lam Son Stadium in Vung Tau, but thankfully the track has been ordered to close by March 2023!1
In 1999, Sports and Entertainment Services Ltd was granted a twenty-five year license to open and operate the facility.2 The first race was held on May 6, 2000.3
Orginally imported from Australia, greyhounds are housed and trained at a kennel complex fifty minutes from the track.4 As many as 750 to 800 greyhounds came to be bred and trained at the Ba Ria Breeding Center each year.5 A kennel caretaker told GREY2K USA Worldwide Board Member Charmaine Settle in 2012 that there has never been an adoption program.6
