Is Greyhound Racing in London going off-track?

Wimbledon Stadium is set to close on March 25th next year, so what does the future hold for dog racing in the capital? London was once the hub for greyhound racing with 33 tracks, but today Wimbledon is the only remaining track. With AFC Wimbledon set to move to Plough Lane, we wanted to examine the effect the closing of the stadium was having on the already suffering greyhound industry in London.

In our podcast we spoke to a range of figures from the world of greyhound racing. We spoke to Gary Matthews, Stadium track manager, George & Rod Reed, local bookmakers; Phil Donaldson, Racing Post commentator; Mark Burridge, a greyhound owner and fanatic; Stephen Hammond, MP for Wimbledon, Raynes Park, Morden and Motspur Park.
