Two forms of racing that Borzoi participate in are Straight Line and Oval racing.
Our dogs participate only for titles. Straight Line racing is run by LGRA (Large Gazehound Racing Association). The Champion title is a GRC or Gazehound Racing Champion. Oval Racing is run by NOTRA (National Oval Track Racing Association) and their championship title is an ORC or Oval Racing Championship. Straight line and Oval racing is different from Lure coursing in that the winner is not based on a judgement, but speed alone. Each group consists of 4 Borzoi each running out of a starting box, but may be hand slipped from time to time. During these competitions they will always wear blankets based on starting position left to right: 1) Red, 2) Blue, 3) White, 4) Green.
