Greyhound Racing NSW celebrates the athleticism of the dogs ahead of the TAB Million Dollar Chase

Greyhound Racing NSW has launched a campaign to promote the second year of the TAB Million Dollar Chase.

The campaign, titled ‘Poetry in Motion’, seeks to showcase the grace and athleticism of the greyhounds as they run by featuring last year’s race winner, Mystic Riot.

Proceeds of the tickets to the race will be donated to Greyhound Racing’s not-for-profit initiative, Greyhounds As Pets.

Tony Mestrov, CEO of Greyhound Racing NSW, said: “This is a tremendous and very significant event for greyhound racing, which will showcase our sport to a much wider audience. This historic telecast will mean that our race – the world’s richest greyhound race – can now be seen in the living rooms of all Australians. I’m delighted that this event, through ticketing proceeds and donations, will support our GAP program, which is a key plank in the industry’s commitment to rehoming retired racing dogs.”

Banjo’s managing partner, Andrew Varasdi, said: “We’ve been working closely with Greyhound Racing NSW to develop a campaign that not only drives awareness to the world’s richest greyhound race but celebrates and continues to educate people about what magnificent athletes and animals greyhounds are in every way.”

The print execution for the Million Dollar Chase

The Million Dollar Chase will be broadcast live on free-to-air television on 9Gem on 18 October.

The campaign can be seen across digital and print in The Daily Telegraph, and on Nine and Sky Racing.
