About

The National Coursing Club

The National Coursing Club (NCC) was formed in 1858 and has controlled greyhound coursing since then, in the same way that the Jockey Club controls racing.

In 1882 the NCC created the original Greyhound Stud Book, which it has administered ever since. From that date the breed was "closed". All the greyhounds running today on track and field in Britain, Ireland, America and Australia trace directly to Waterloo Cup winners of the past like Farndon Ferry. → Read more
