you are visiting us for the first time visit, or visit us even once in
awhile, we would like to thank you for coming out to see some of the
most exciting action on the Seacoast.
Part of the fun of going to Seabrook Greyhound Park is the wagering.
Most of the people that wager at the Park, "play" their favorite number
or color or name. It's great fun to watch the race and follow your dog
as they streak by you at over 45 miles per hour! It's even more fun
when the race is over and you are holding a winning ticket!
The odds are better than the lottery and you get to see great racing
action. The Park can be great fun for you and your friends and
can be, "A Real Change Of Pace."
It you have never placed a bet before, don't worry it's easy! Just go to a betting window, and purchase a ticket.

The program contains valuable information which will help you wager
more intelligently. It tells you how a greyhound raced in his/her most
recent starts, at what grade, and against what competition. A
greyhound's previous performances are the best indication of how he/she
may perform today.
(4) The Grade:
Races are graded A, B, C, D, E, and M (maiden, non-winner).
Statistically, an A graded greyhound dropping to B grade has a better
chance of winning than a B upgraded to grade A
(5) Seabrook Record:
This Shows the number of times the greyhound has finished in the money (1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th) versus the number of starts.
