English Greyhound Derby

The Greyhound Derby is the premier competition in the sport and attracts not only the leading four-bend performers from the United Kingdom, but also some of the elite Irish greyhounds and it is the highlight of the entire year, and it will now be an event that is hosted at Nottingham Greyhound Stadium and run over 500m, and takes place in May and June.

It was first run at White City in 1927 and also at Haringay in 1940, before being contested at White City over 500y, 525y and 500m up until 1984 when it finally left that stadium and moved to Plough Lane, Wimbledon in 1985, and since it's move to that venue it has continued to be the marquee event in the greyhound calendar, and down the years has been won by some of the finest greyhounds to ever grace the sport.  However, Wimbledon's closure in 2017 saw the last Greyhound Derby run at that venue take place in 2016, which was an event won by Jaytee Jet, but down the years some sensational greyhounds have won the competition.  A brief time at Towcester, the Greyhound Derby then moved to Nottingham in 2019.
