Greyhound racing in Uruguay takes place on several straight tracks throughout the country. The races are generally held several times a month on the weekends.1
There are both imported and greyhounds bred in Uruguay participating in races. For example, greyhounds are sometimes bred in Argentina or Brazil and then are brought to Uruguay to race.2 There are five greyhound breeding kennels in Uruguay listed on greyhound-data.com, an online database maintained by dog racing gamblers.3
We found no evidence of any rules or regulations for greyhound racing.
Wagering on greyhound races appears to be legal in Uruguay. According to a 2011 news article, individuals have bet as much as $500 on a race at Melo, Cerro Largo, Uruguay.4
