Macau Canidrome Dog Track
Macau Canidrome Dog Track is the place for greyhound racing for those above the age of 18. Every night of the week other than Wednesday and Friday racing begins at 7:30pm. Public admission costs just MOP$10. The Canidrome originally opened in 1931 but it was closed down in 1938. It was later reopened in 1963. This makes it one of the oldest gambling sites in Macau by technical rulings though it is not a traditional casino and isn’t found in the localized gaming regions of Macau more dedicated to gambling and casinos.
You can find a great article here on the past history and expected future of the Canidrome.
Macau Canidrome Dog Track hosts races nightly on a 400 meter sand racetrack (except for Wednesdays and Fridays). With more than 50 years of operation, the Canidrome has an extensive history. Guests would find the Yat Yuen Slots parlor here prior to the new gaming law changes that took place in Macau, requiring all slots to be within 500 meters of a casino or existing commercial complex. This slot hall was shut down with the new rule changes as well as four other clot halls across Macau (SJM and Mocha properties). The rule was made to help gambling addiction issues in residential areas. The ruling has managed to successfully keep the casinos confined to casino-exclusive regions in Macau, and in a way has been helpful for the tourists seeking a more localized experience while gambling here in Macau.
Despite the rulings the races still go on. The track has an excellent vibe and you’ll find mostly regulars with the occasional tourist here and there. The Macau Canidrome is owned by SJM. If betting and dog racing is your thing this is definitely the place for you. It’s one of the best dog racing tracks in the world as many guests will agree.
