Reata Whippet Racing Group

Sighthound Racing and Coursing Competition in Utah


The Independent Whippet Racing Organization (IWRO) was formed in 2002, to encourage Whippet racing competition in geographic areas that do not have a Whippet Racing Population or Entry size to regularly facilitate "Major" Racing sanction events, i.e., under such sanctions as NAWRA, WRA, CWA and NOTRA.  The IWRO sanction yields to major sanction rules when entry size exceeds 14.  IWRO provides an Independent Sprint Champion(ISC) and Independent Oval Champion(IOC) award program designed to reward excellence in racing Whippets when they have met the necessary ISC and IOC point requirements.

IWRO Rule Books available for $2.00 including s/h.  Contact us at
