Who wants to be a millionaire?


Just 10 days remain before applications close for a slot in the 2022 Phoenix, to be run at The Meadows on Saturday 17 December. The Phoenix is The World's richest greyhound race, with prize money elevated to a whopping $1.65 million this year – including a life-changing first prize of $1 million. Individuals and organisations are invited to apply to purchase a slot in the race at a cost of $100,000, with applications to close at 11:59pm on Friday 26 August 2022. Prize money will be paid down to eighth place.

Former Premier of Victoria Dr Denis Napthine AO will again lead the Independent Assessment Panel, which will have the responsibility of selecting the eight successful slot holders. Slot holders will each select the greyhound they wish to represent them in the race, negotiating private deals with greyhound owners and trainers if they don’t own their own potential contender.
