Track Tips From "The Pup"

Keeping Records Means Increasing Profits At the Dog Track

By Pup
I'm always surprised when someone comes to me to learn how to win at the greyhound track. Without fail I learn that don't keep any records. None. Nada. Zilch! So I ask them, "How do you know what is working and what isn't?" They never have an answer.

If you are going to take the money you worked hard to earn and bet it on a greyhound you need to know if the bet you are making is a profitable one long term. How do you know this? Records! The more detailed records you keep the more you will learn about YOUR handicapping. You will find things you are doing that work as well as things you are doing that don't.

From inside his Shawnee home, Randy Birch provides the voice for the online radio show at, designed to hype up greyhound racing and bring in online bets. He keeps stat sheets handy to reference during the show

It’s Friday afternoon, and Randy Birch’s rollicking, radio voice is fast-talking dogs, dollars and the deliciousness of the cold Budweiser in his hand.

Sluuuurrrpp. Aaahhhh.

When the trumpet sounds and eight greyhounds explode from the chutes, Birch’s banter veers toward his favorite pup — who, in this particular race, is named Elvis Presley and happens to be winning.
