Creeks hope to revive dog track


As the lean dogs jumped from the starting boxes, only a few dozen spectators at Mobile Greyhound Park were scattered across the upstairs clubhouse for the fifth race of the night.

Downstairs at the grandstand, a small crowd gathered around televisions, and crumpled losing tickets blanketed the floor. Nearly every seat was vacant.
