When the article was published, there were 49 tracks in the US; now there are 23. This is the clearest explanation of the industry that I have ever seen. The Greymeadows Greyhound Farm pictured in the article – heaven to racing and retired greyhounds – is now out of business. This farm had a kennel of retired racers up for adoption and it housed many old greyhounds who lived out their lives on the farm. It was an amazing place; not an odor to be found and neat as a pin. Ken and Wendy Brotherton purchased the farm in 2011 and it’s now Signature Farm.
