Economic Impact
Investing in Our Community
The personnel at Alabama tracks donate their time and give generously
to local non-profit organizations. In 2006, these tracks donated
$139,044 to non-profit causes.
The taxes paid by the three
greyhound racetracks in Alabama –
Birmingham (Birmingham Race
Course), Mobile (Mobile
Greyhound Park) and Shorter
(Victoryland) – generate revenue
to help pay for critical community
services. These three tracks
employed 3,403 people and
spent more than $14.7 million
purchasing goods and services
from local businesses.
Caring for Our Fast Friends
The tracks in Alabama are committed to the welfare of racing
greyhounds from the time they are born, through their racing
careers and into retirement. In addition to supporting national industry
greyhound welfare programs, the tracks in Alabama also sponsor their
own welfare programs.
In 2006, these three tracks contributed $91,100 to welfare and/or
greyhound adoption programs in their local markets. Through their
concerted efforts, 429 greyhounds were adopted.
