Stud Book

The Greyhound Stud Book is the official registry of British Bred greyhounds. All British bred greyhounds must be registered with the Stud Book in order to be earmarked and eligible for racing on GBGB tracks.

We register young dogs, litters, stud dogs and matings – as well as owners, breeders and syndicates – on a daily basis, and disseminate relevant information also daily to the GBGB and to tracks via the PA.

Once a year all this information is published in book form, together with illustrated feature articles on British and Irish greyhound racing and breeding, plus the Irish Coursing year. The first Greyhound Stud Book was published in 1882 – and it has been produced every year since then.
