Welcome to The Whippet Racing Club

of Victoria Inc.

Come and enjoy an afternoon of competitive whippet racing in a fun, social and family friendly environment.

The Whippet Racing Club of Victoria Inc. (WRCV) started out as hound racing in the early 1970’s.  The WRCV has been at its present home at the Sandown Greyhound Racing Club since early 2015, after parting ways with the Tooradin track after 10 years.  Whippet racing is still very much enjoyed by whippet owners of today as well as other regular sighthounds (Deerhounds, Afghans, Salukis, Greyhounds).

WRCV is the only competitive racing club for whippets in Victoria, with each race timed and dogs able to build up their championship points.  Trophies are awarded at the end of the season.  Even if your whippet just wants to run for fun, and burn off some energy, you are more than welcome to join in.  Trials are held on your first race meet for a gold coin donation.


Race meets are held monthly from March-November and all whippets and their owners are welcome to join in the family friendly, relaxed, social atmosphere… enjoy a cold drink and delicious food from the Sandown Bar and enter into the WRCV raffle to win some lovely prizes.

If you are new to the WRCV, please be sure to visit and ‘like’ our Facebook page (www.facebook.com/WhippetRacing) for all the latest news and updates.  The Facebook page is also home to all the racing results, schedules, photos and general discussion for club members and fans alike. 

We look forward to seeing you track-side.
