Greyhound Racing Set to Retun To Bolton

Who remembers the dog racing track, Raikes Lane Bolton? Well over a decade after it closing we may see its return. Not to its original site at Raikes Lane but on another 12-acre site within the Bolton Boundary.

The Bolton Greyhound and Motor Sport Alliance have been campaigning for more than three years now to bring a stadium back to Bolton.

The greyhound track in Bolton originally opened in 1927 and closed over a decade ago but may see a return with enthusiasts reporting they have the backing of stock car event organiser, a greyhound stadium owner and a sponsor willing to give £250,000 for the naming rights to the stadium.

The backers are now just looking for a 12-acre site to build a £2,500 capacity stadium.

This is another great development happening in Bolton which will be fantastic for bringing visitors into the town.
