Future still unknown for Macau’s greyhound track

Greyhound track operator, Macau (Yat Yuen) Canidrome, whose license is set to expire in July next year, has not yet received notice from the government requesting the initiation of exit procedures and guidelines for coordination, according to SJM director Angela Leong On Kei, TDM Radio reports.

Leong said that despite the tender opened to look into uses for the property, the future of the venue was still uncertain.

Earlier this year, the Macau government said it was considering turning the Macau Yat Yuen Canidrome greyhound track into a cultural, leisure, sports and education facility.

Paulo Martins Chan, director of the Gaming Inspection and Coordination Bureau (DICJ) previously said that the government is aiming to develop the land into something that could improve the neighborhood’s offerings.
