Event to Support Greyhound Racing in Kansas

First of all we at Big Jackpot Betting would like to give a call out to the crew that made last night's event such a success. A special thank you goes out to the management and staff of the Sportspage Lounge in Kansas City,Kansas who along with Kevin Ward, Michael Loeffler, Bobby Johnson, Shay Rich and of course our own Randy Birch worked together to make last night a reality. Without the help from these dedicated people we never would have been able to pull off a live remote broadcast and combine it with the live broadcast of the night's races from Tri-State Greyhound Park and present it on the internet for all to view.

What was planned as a reunion of long time Woodlands employess and fans actually turned into something much more important than that. The local media picked up on the event from our press releases and sent camera crews and reporters to see what was up. The Kansas legislature was also represented when David Haley, a state of Kansas senator, showed up to express his support in returning greyhound racing to the State of Kansas. The Sportspage Lounge was packed with people who would love to have their jobs in the greyhound industry returned and also with a large group of greyhound racing fans who expressed a desire to support the return of pari-mutuel greyhound racing to the state of Kansas. The support for racing was heard loud and clear and the prospects for its return are beginning to look better by the day.

We at Big Jackpot Betting were proud to have been involved in an event that may just well prove to be the beginning of a grass roots movement that may lead to a groundswell resulting in the return of live Greyhound Racing to Kansas.

Thanks to all of you who participated by attending or viewing on It is with your continued support that we can grow this sport and return it to its past glory. Thank you all for being part of this.
