Wiener Dog Races

It’s the time we all have been waiting for: wiener dog races! This is the 11th Annual Wiener Dog Race held at Ellis Park. On July 11- 12 the trials and qualifying heats will be held in attempt to make it to the final round which will occur the following weekend on July 18.

Gates open at 11:00 a.m and post time is 12:50 p.m. These undeniably adorable precious pups charge toward the victory line, or possibly other dogs, birds, bugs, etc, in attempts to become a champion. Of course for a dog lover, every wiener dog is a champion whether they win or not.

All contestants are 100% dachshunds. Unfortunately, it is too late to register your potential winner in this year’s race but be sure to be on the look out next year in 2016.

These darting dachshunds may seem at a disadvantage with their short legs, but when you come out this Saturday and Sunday you will be amazed at how speedy they are.

Let’s also not forget that every Sunday at Ellis Park is Dollar Day! That means this Sunday, July 12th, you can come out. watch live wiener dog races and enjoy Dollar Day! It’s exactly what it sounds like! The following are ONLY $1 each:

  • Hot Dogs
