Greyhound racing may be going to the dogs.

The sport seems in a steep decline.

Ten years ago, there were 50 greyhound tracks in 15 states.

Today, there are just 25 tracks in seven states, with 13 of them in Florida, once considered the hub of dog racing.

A spokesman for Caesars Entertainment in Las Vegas says nationally, money bet on greyhound races dropped from $3.5 billion to $1.1 billion between 1991 and 2007.
