Welcome To The Online Home Of GIT
2013 Race dates are updated, see dates page.
GIT (Gazehounds in Texas) is an all-breed sighthound club, dedicated to the sports of amateur racing & lure coursing. Racing and lure coursing allow hounds to enjoy their natural instincts to run, but in our case the lure is just a white plastic bag, or a piece of synthetic fur. We hold 200 yard straight track (sprint) races the rules of LGRA, the Large Gazehound Racing Association and 350 yard oval races under the auspices of NOTRA (National Oval Track Racing Association).
Our races are open to all approved sighthound breeds except whippets. Not that we don't like whippets ;-) but they have their own racing organizations. However, we do offer racing for whippets at our February NOTRA meet.
If you are new to racing, here are the two most important rules:
Racing is a very labor intensive sport. If you plan to show up, plan to work. If you don't plan to help, don't plan to come. You don't need any experience, but please be willing to pitch in!
See rule #1 above ;-) We'd love to have you come out, but we're serious about being willing to help.
If you are interested in racing your sighthound, send an e-mail and we'll try to help you get started. Also, be sure to read carefully all the info listed under "Getting Started"
