1937 Coursing News. I was looking at an amusing article about greyhound colors. As I paged through some of the books something else crossed my mind. The way the conformation, and weight, and continuity of the breed has been maintained.

EJ's Douglas - A Legend & A Friend

EJ's Douglas repeatedly blew away some of the toughest competition at the finest tracks. As an all around legend, EJ's Douglas was inspirational as a dam sire and as a greeter at the Hall of Fame. There was nothing this remarkable dog could not accomplish. He's what greyhound hearts are made of. We are pleased to share one of our favorite Legends, EJ's Douglas. #AStarIsBorn

As we put 2018 in the history book, I would like to thank all of our donors for making our mission possible throughout the year. The Hall of Fame has many dedicated supporters. To name a few, the auction participants, the Hall of Fame club, the memorials, the NGA, the AGC, the tracks, the gift shop, our vendors and the traveling public. All have contributed to our success. Thank you. It is because of you the Greyhound Hall of Fame is able to maintain the showplace of the greats, both human and greyhound alike.

As it is with others in the industry, we face some challenging times. The board is dedicated to planning our future and working to ensure the Hall of Fame is here to tell your story.
