The Cambridgeshire town of Newmarket links itself clearly with the sport of Horse Racing, yet evidence does show that it hosted Greyhound Racing also. Evidence shows that it took place at the towns football ground on Cricket Field Road during 1947, and also an advert printed in the Greyhound Owner newspaper of 1967, shows that it had more than just one brief spell. Little is known on how it operated or how long these brief spells lasted. Newmarket Town Football ground still exists and is a total different venue from those days of Greyhound Racing. The Cricket Field Road ground is situated roughly half a mile south of Newmarket town centre.

This Greyhound Owner advert is dated July 1967.
