Industry can learn from greyhound ban
A dog named Rain Spot crossed the wire first in Saturday's 10th race at Raynham Park, a track that has been around for 69 years, and then it was over. Rain Spot's race is the last dog race that will ever be run in Massachusetts, a state where voters decided the sport was so cruel to its animals that it had to come to an end. With a ban on dog racing in the Bay State about to go into effect Jan. 1, Raynham ran its last-ever card Saturday.
