The wiener dog has to be the least qualified of all dogs to race competitively. But, I mean, the unnaturalness of it is what makes it so cute, right? This Saturday, May 25, you can watch a bunch of disproportional doggies run as fast as their little legs will take them at the annual Wiener Dog Races from 7-10 pm, gates open at 5:30.\nThis race event is being hosted by the Sam Houston Race Park to conclude the 2019 Racing Season. You can find over 50 wiener dogs of all ages, shapes, and sized race down a 30-yard track in between the horse races.\nThe dogs will take off on the actual track starting from "miniature gates". The first wiener race will begin at around 8 pm. They'll even be wearing little uniforms. I repeat: Little. Uniforms.\nGeneral admission is $8, $4 for kids age 4-12 and seniors over 62, and free for kids under 4 —because they're almost just as cute. Almost.\nView this post on Instagram The dogs are coming to @samhoustonracepark...and we aren't talking about greyhounds. This Saturday bring the whole family out to see the cutest race contestants to take the track for Derby Dog Dash! We will have wiener dog, corgi, and mixed small breed Dog races between our live Quarter Horse races. Come out and enjoy the races and $1 hot dogs this Saturday! #dollarhotdogs #wienerdog #corgi #dograces A post shared by Sam Houston Race Park (@samhoustonracepark) on Apr 24, 2017 at 7:40am PDT\nThere will be 8 heats with 8 dogs in each heat. The winner of each heat will qualify to participate in the 9th Championship Race. The first place champion will take home $200 cash, and the second place winner will take $100 cash. Imagine the number of treats you could buy with that. The stakes are high.\nLast year, 64 wiener dogs (known formally as dachshunds) competed in the race.\nView this post on Instagram Wiener Dog races at Sam Houston Race Park #cuties #dogs #racinglife A post shared by Sam Houston Race Park (@samhoustonracepark) on Feb 11, 2017 at 6:21pm PST\nYou can even buy $1 hotdogs all night while you watch. Feels kind of wrong, but whatever.\nThe unathletic pups are welcome to come out and watch the races as well. So bring your dog out to watch the fun.\nYou can catch the dogs (well, you can try) this Saturday, May 25, at Sam Houston Race Park located at 7575 N. Sam Houston Parkway West.\nMay the best dog wien.\nCover image used for illustrative purposes only.\nWe strongly advise that before you go visit any location, you check the most recent updates on potential hazards, security and animal rights.
