Wiener Dog Races 2014 at Hastings Racecourse (PHOTOS, VIDEOS)


Talk about your hot dogs! This weekend at Hastings Racecourse was the annual Wiener Dog Races, and the action was as exciting as it was adorable.

It was a classic “come from behind” victory for competitor Roger, who nabbed his second consecutive win. With runs quick enough to be captured in an Instagram video, there was fun for dogs, their people, and their enthusiastic fans alike, though no wagering on the pooches.
