You will require this registration if you intend to own greyhounds intended for racing. You may own a greyhound as an individual, or as part of a group of people (a syndicate).

A greyhound cannot compete in a racing event conducted by Greyhound Racing Victoria unless its owner and trainer are registered with Greyhound Racing Victoria. All applications are made through FastTrack and require the applicant to be a member of Greyhound Racing Victoria.

Please consult the responsible agency for more information and to ascertain the level of compliance (if any) that may be required.
