An investigation has exposed blatant cheating and the drugging of dogs at the heart of greyhound racing, leading to calls for changes to how the sport is regulated.

You really don't need to drug a greyhound for it to falter.

If one of the guys putting the dogs into the traps gives the dead-cert favourites gonads a hard squeeze, then believe me, it isn't going to be first past the post.

When we kids, we were employed to drug a black and white dog at Perry Bar but we couldn’t find it and so we done all the black and white dogs. No black and white dog won for ages after. Some of these dogs became addicts. We used to get the gear off imanslows mom.
