Welcome to New Mexico Sighthounds

Lobo Lure Coursing Club (LLCC) was formed to host lure coursing events since the sport's inception back in the early 1970's. Originally known as Albuquerque Whippet Fanciers Association (AWFA), LLCC offers several events per year, including AKC and ASFA lure coursing, which are limited to the sighthound breeds. Beginning in 2008, LLCC has also hosted NOTRA oval track racing events; this lasted only a few years. In 2011 LLCC began offering AKC CAT trials, and in 2019 ASFA LCI events which are open to all dogs. We have something for everyone!  

AKC Lure Coursing breeds are: Afghan Hound, Basenji, Borzoi, Cirneco dell'Etna, Greyhound, Ibizan Hound, Irish Wolfhound, Italian Greyhound, Pharaoh Hound, Rhodesian Ridgeback, Saluki, Scottish Deerhound, Sloughi, and Whippet. Hounds must be at least one year of age or older and have been registered with the American Kennel Club or an AKC recognized foreign registry or that have been granted a PAL / ILP number may be entered. Azawakh, Sloughi, Norrbottenspets, Portuguese Podengos (Medio & Grande), and Thai Ridgeback houds 1 year of age or older, that have been recorded with the Foundation Stock Service (FSS), or that have a PAL/ILP number are eligible to enter Lure Coursing Tests and Trials for Junior, Senior, and Master Courser titles, but are not eligible for championship points.

Racing Union of New Mexico (RUNM) was formed in 2018 to host amateur straight racing events for sighthounds. Hounds are grouped by "grade" - or speed based on prior races - and run in groups of four at a time. Over the course of the day the races get more competitive, and the final High Point Race for each breed is often hotly contested.
