More Opportunities to Win!

After the amazing success of its initial running as a sweepstakes event, we’ve expanded the Launching Pad in 2016 to give more participants the opportunity to win more prize money!

In 2016, the Launching Pad will:

  • be conducted over three weeks in a heats/semi final/final format
  • expand to 96 Entry Forms
  • introduce a consolation series for the best 32 greyhounds (based on their placings in the heats, nominations for the Consolation are automatic)
  • carry $460,000 in prize money over the three week series!
