Derby Lane Greyhound Racing has graced The Sunshine City for 95 years, and we hope locals and tourists will remember us fondly. We invite spectators to enjoy this pastime once more for our final races on December 26th and 27th.  Although we will be ending racing, the Poker Room and Simulcasting areas will continue to operate for years to come.
