Registration as a Greyhound Owner - Victoria


You will need this registration to own greyhounds intended for racing. You may own a greyhound as an individual, or as part of a group of people (a syndicate). You can become a greyhound owner by either purchasing a pup or purchasing a greyhound that is already racing or that is soon to be racing for the first time.

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.

Service type


A licence defines the need to obtain recognition / certification and registration to undertake a certain business activity.

Eligibility requirements

To be eligible for this registration, you must:

  • be at least 18 years old (or have a parent or legal guardian fill out the Consent for Minors section on the application form)
  • comply with the conditions set out by the Agency.

If the greyhound is owned by two or more people, the registration must be in the name of a syndicate.

Each member of the syndicate must be registered with the Board as an owner, and appoint a delegated person who is authorised to act on behalf of the syndicate.

The syndicate must also nominate a Second Delegated Person to act on behalf of the syndicate in the event that no delegated person is available.

A person who is registered as a trainer does not need to be registered as an owner for greyhounds they own.
