TV Trophy

The TV Trophy is a greyhound competition run at Towcester over 906m, and is the marquee marathon event in the calendar, and usually kicks off in the middle of November, and concludes in the latter part of that month.

It requires greyhounds with huge amounts of stamina, as they cover two bends of Towcester greyhound stadium, the home of the Greyhound Derby, and only the toughest, stamina-laden greyhounds will prevail and etch their name alongside some of the finest stayers in the sport.

Established in 1952, the TV Trophy was one of the biggest events in the sport, and was shown live on BBC in the early years of his history, and it has also had a host of homes, with it being held at West Ham, Walthamstow and Belle Vue, before spending several years at Wimbledon.  In 2015 it was moved to its current home of Towcester, and it will attract the leading marathon runners in training.

Scurlogue Champ is undoubtedly the most notable winner of the TV Trophy, as that superstar greyhound was victorious in the 1985 and 1986 TV Trophy for Ken Peckham, while more recently the likes of Spiridon Louis (2007), Flying Winner (2008) and Midway Skipper (2009,2010) have all stormed to victory in what is one of the highlights on the calendar.
