Hastings Pier Greyhound Racer 1969

We worked on the Greyhound Racer, Hastings Pier during student vacation in the summer of 1969. Chris and Sue Fisher (photo) and other students were callers and race commentator and Sue gave out the prizes. Ted Baker of Coburg Place, Hastings was manager of the Racer, it was owned by Mr Brenner. We managed to sneak in free to The Who concert and wrestler Mick McManus waved as he walked by. Long hours, 6 day weeks, low pay – but it was fun!

  • While on holiday in Hastings I remember my parents taking me to play on the Greyhound. If you got the balls in the middle section the Greyhound moved twice as far so that was the aim. Between four of us we won lots of prizes for the home like a green glass fruit set. The best Stand of all as it required a lot of skill.
