The Owlerton track became the second ‘oval circuit’ stadium in Sheffield to be used for greyhound racing, after one in Darnall. It opened for dog racing in January 1932 having been previously used for speedway racing since 30 March 1929. Since then, the stadium has closed on two occasions, once to meet safety and associated refurbishment requirements and then in 1990 following a mistake with its betting licence. Most recently, A&S Leisure (the owners of five casino restaurants) purchased the track and they have reportedly spent £3 million on further refurbishments.
