The greyhound track in the Welsh city of Swansea is situated at 4° 0' W 51° 38' N and has operated as an independent track throughout its history. A number of tracks were opened in South Wales, although one of the earliest was the one located at Ystrad Road in Swansea which opened on 7th July 1928. Indeed the first winner to be celebrated at the track was the 3/1 Paddy Braun over the 525 yard distance. Traditional race nights were Tuesday and Saturday and the course hosted both the Welsh Derby over 525 yards and the Autumn Cup over 525 yards.

This section gives a comprehensive picture of the badges produced by the track throughout the ages, but only provides the briefest of glimpses of its history. For those wishing to undertake further research we can recommend a visit to
