About Greyhound Race Course in Macau
Greyhound Racing is the organized and competitive sport in which greyhound dogs have to race around the track. Greyhound racing has two forms, i.e. track racing and the coursing. Track racing make use of artificial lure which travels ahead the dogs on the rail until that crosses the finish line. This is also the racing in which the public will be the audience and people can only witness. In the coursing, dogs get to chase the lure which may be a rabbit or hare which may get killed by the dog. Many of the country has greyhound racing as amateur and just for the purpose of enjoyment. In the places like Macau and many others greyhound racing is the one which forms a major part in the gambling industry. The fact is that greyhound racing is not very profitable as that of horse races and so it implies too much of pressure on the dogs and they get very little care.
The History of Greyhound Racing
Yat Yuen Canidrome is the operation greyhound track in the Macau and it started in the year 1931 from the inspiration of one such in Shanghai. Shanghai had large canidrome which was built in the year 1928 that became very popular entertainment venue. The elite people of Shanghai visited the track and they bet and also had fun and dined here but it closed down gradually with the decline of interest. Yat Yuen Candidrome also faced issues in 1938 leading to its shutdown. They reopened in the year 1963 and also got the aid from the Greyhound racing canidome that was dysfunctional in Shanghai in terms of the equipment and staff necessary to reopen the greyhound racing Candidrome in Macau. The Yat Yuen Canidrome in Macau has been functioning well from them with betters from all over the world.
The greyhound racing in Yat Yuen completed about 50 years in the year 2013. It is the only one greyhound racing track in Asia. The races are usually held in the place between 7:30 pm to midnight. Majority of the greyhounds for racing in the city of Macau are imported from Australia. In the year 2012 there was an import of 378 greyhounds.
The Macau greyhound racing is coming to an end soon as there are so many legal complications in the way they were handling the races and the animals. The greyhounds that are into race can be in this only till about 4 to 5 years and after that these greyhounds are usually sent to some adoption centers.

Kasturi's 5 days trip to MacauThank you so much Travel Triangle for putting together such a wonderful trip. The vehicle and meals were all good. The best part of the trip was the tour guides they were too good. They kept our schedule exactly how we asked. Very well organized. Many more trips to go
Gauri's 8 days trip to MacauThank you so much for the arrangements made by travel triangle. We had an amazing trip. Everything went according to the itinerary. We did not have to face any difficulty and very much satisfied with the services provided by travel triangle. There was a difficulty before departure, the ferry bookings were made incorrectly by our spoc. This is very sad to write but, he did not correct it nor he had a courtesy to call the us and ask whether it is rectified or not. And most importantly, i would like to thank Bijay Kushwaha for the quick support by him. I had contacted him at 11PM regarding the ferry tickets issue. And the very next day he corrected my ferry tickets and sent me the updated tickets. And even he told that we can contact him anytime if any issue is there throughout my journey. This is the support customers need, when making the bookings from travel agency. We had even contacted customer care and whats app group regarding the same issue. But we were told that they can fix this in official hours. When we did not know whether our issue will get resolved or not, as we were supposed to fly within 10-11 hours. We really appreciate Bijay for helping us.

Shobhik's 4 days trip to MacauThank You ! The trip was amazing, i loved everything, the cities, the tours, the food, the people, . HongKong & Macau are a cities to go on vacations. Our travel advisor (Manideepa) listened to our interests and then developed an itinerary that matched. The travel company i.e DESI YATRA (ASTHA) was exceptional, they took care of everything (hotels, transportation, tours, food). They were very quick answering emails and recommending all the tours and hotel options. I just told them what kind of locations i wanted to visit and they prepared the perfect itinerary for me :) I was traveling with my friend and i was looking for a travel company that could help me with everything, and they did! Everything was taken care of us, which made our international trip go smoother than we could have ever hoped. Thank You HongKong & Macau! Thank You Travel Triangle!
Shruthiramdas's 4 days trip to MacauOverall we had a wonderful time ,but slight changes should have been there like,spa body massage could be on the last day of our trip,garuda statuue visit should have been included,ubud tour was not that great ,kintamani place was exotic and water sports was fun. Hotel center was good,since we had many hotels and Krishna Oleh was too good for shopping,other than the tour schedule we had our own explore to beachs and sight seeing..hotel room could be better..morning breakfast was good Decal dance,watersports,kintamani volcano
Pratik's 6 days trip to MacauThe trip could have been better if hotel provided in Hong Kong would have been changed. Tour guide in Hong Kong was not at all good even the driver. Otherwise rest things were ok.
Sowmya's 5 days trip to MacauVenetian hotel in Macau was excellent. Breakfast difficult for vegetarians. Hotel in hongkong - Regal hongkong was good, but breakfast was worst for vegetarians. Driver (lady) in Macau was good. But drivers in Hongkong were not at all good. Marium was good, even Astha.
