Southland Park Gaming and Racing
Southland has achieved a remarkable certification of Silver in the Environmental Leads Program, which is a major achievement for a building built in the 1950’s.
During the remodeling process over 1.7 million tons of debris did not go to the dump but was recycled. The Heating and Air Ventilation system is the most efficient and modern state of the art air smoke filtration system available. The inside air is filtrated to the outside and never goes back into the building. Clean air is the end result. Smoking is allowed in the gaming sections but not in any of the dining venues. The extreme air filtration system eliminates irritants from smoking taking the smoke straight up and out.
Currently Southland offers three player reward programs covering each individual gaming venue. Eventually in 2007 Southland will have a one card player reward program encompassing all phases of gaming history to one card.
Greyhound Racing – Southland offers pari-mutuel wagering, which means that you aren't betting against the house, you are competing with the other patrons. Southland’s 19% takeout is the lowest anywhere, so you know that 81% of the money wagered on Southland's races goes back home with the patrons after each performance.
Free theatre seating is available on both levels. Upper level also has carrels (boxes), which are by reservation only. Each carrel has a 13 inch television, table, available internet service for your laptop and seating for 4 people.
The Track is an oval dirt track. Races are about 8 minutes apart. Each race takes about 32 seconds. Eight dogs run per race. Betting starts at $2. Programs are available for $1 packed with information about the races, the dogs, stats, and helpful tips. Also brochures line the wall for beginners needing a little help. If you are new to greyhound racing or a veteran of the tracks you will find information at www.southlandgreyhound.com on the schedules, the dogs, how to, and just about anything you want to know about racing.
Watching the dogs race is fun and exciting. The lag time between races gives you time to regroup, visit, or socialize. If you have never experienced Southland Greyhound Park, give it a try. You may be pleasantly surprised and have fun too!
