The whippet wranch is located on private property near Paris, TX. Our goal is to promote sighthound racing, but we love seeing those "other breeds" that just wanna have fun, too.
WRA & NOTRA
We primary race the 200 yard straight track (WRA or Whippet Racing association) and oval (NOTRA or National Oval Track Racing Association). Because of a drop off in numbers of interested whippets, we may investigate alternatives such as British Rules or weight graded racing.

@ the wranch
The hounds tend to be naturals, but dogs have to be certified "clean" (i.e. not likely to foul) before racing, and getting used to the boxes takes just a little bit of orientation. We are happy to hold practices for interested parties as the wranch managers schedule allows. Please contact us for practice. In general, it is good to have several sets of helping hands available (at least 3 people).
