2021 Australia Group 1 Greyhound Races

The Australian Greyhound Racing Association conducts two major national greyhound races annually - the National Sprint and Distance Championships.

The events are marketed as "The Nationals" and feature finals over the distances in the vicinity of 500m and 700m. Heats and Finals are staged in each State with the Grand Final rotating from State to State each year.

In 2010 the Grand Finals was held at Angle Park in South Australia.

Both the National Sprint Championship and the National Distance Championship carry a first prize of $50,000 and both events are classified as Group 1 events.
