Pig-racing is a sport in which juvenile pigs race around a small enclosed dirt, fake grass or gravel track. This racing is usually purely for entertainment, and betting is not part of it. It is often one of the attractions at county fairs, but is also practiced in many backyard setups.
The newest pig-racing show traveling the USA is called Hot Dog Pig Races which included pig racing and dachshunds. You can find them at fairs and festivals such as Ocean County Fair NJ, Dundulk Heritage Festival MD, Pig Gig Bay City MI and the Magnet Festival in Portlaoise. At Hugh Lynch's in Tullamore every July also. All-Alaskan Pig Racing, Sue Wee Pigs and Ugly Pig Racing are other shows traveling the USA.
