About Phoenix Greyhound Park
American Greyhound Racing (AGR) has created fun and excitement in the Phoenix area for more that 55 years. Greyhound racing is a sure entertainment bet for the visitors who pass through the doors of one of our many off-track betting locations throughout the Phoenix area and Arizona.
Through our OTB# network, AGR offers pari-mutuel simulcast wagering from racetracks across the nation. By definition, the term "pari-mutuel" tells the bettor that this is a place where they can bet among each other, not against the house. The track retains a percentage for handling the wagers. The track makes the same percentage regardless if the bettor wins or loses, thus providing a level playing field for all players.
American Greyhound Racing Inc. is owned by Delaware North Companies Incorporated.
