Kennelling Information

(Enter via View Rd)

The spacious kennel block at Sandown is fully air-conditioned with excellent sound proofing qualities. All the kennels are on ground level, making the lifting of greyhounds unnecessary.

Security is at a premium with total video surveillance in place. The kennel block features a dedicated swab room, 16 swabbing/trial kennels and a separate quarantine kennel. Large wash bays, well grassed empty yards and a raised stir-up yard complete this first class facility.

Kennels open 75 minutes prior to race one and close half an hour before the opening event.
