Calling All “Hot” Dogs for Wiener Nationals Race July 10, 2010

Posted by: Beach Reporter In: beaches| california| events

Sponsored by Wienerschnitzel, the Wiener Nationals are held annually at Los Alamitos Race Course, and are open to owners of Dachshunds who can put in an application with hopes that their prized pet will be selected to enter.
The 15th annual Wienerschnitzel Wiener Nationals at Los Alamitos Race Course on July 10, 2010,  is a 50-yard dash for Dachshunds. Believe it or not over 13,000 fans attended the event last year, held between normal course horse races. In 2009  Presley took home the title and over $1000 in winnings with a speed of 6.8 seconds.  Yep, it goes fast.
If you have a Dachshund and want to enter the Wienerschnitzel Wiener Nationals at Los Alamitos Race Course, write a story and tell why your Wiener Dog should be in the Wiener Nationals. Please make the letter as creative as possible because creativity, rather than speed, counts. You can send a drawing; poem; essay; funny photo; link to Facebook page, MySpace page; YouTube video, DVD or VHS tape or whatever you come up with (entries returned at your request.) For more information, please call 714-820-2690.
All letters must be received by May 25, 2010 to be considered, and must include your phone number and photograph of your dachshund.  Send to: Orlando Gutierrez, Publicity Department, Los Alamitos Race Course, 4961 Katella Ave. Los Alamitos, CA. 90720. You can also email your entry to:
Only 98 dogs will be selected to compete in a total of 12 trials with winner, or wiener, of each trial advancing to the Wienerschnitzel Wiener National at Los Alamitos Final.  There’s no fee to enter - in fact your doggie will win $100 if he/she comes in first place in one of the trials and an additional $900 if he/she wins the championship race.
All of the trials, and the final, will take place Saturday, July 10, 2010 at Los Alamitos. The trials will begin at approximately 6:15 p.m. and the final will be held at about 9:30 p.m.
Wienerschnitzel will continue to sponsor the event for the 14th straight year and the 2010 running is expected to be bigger and better than ever. The races are held to raise funds for the Seal Beach Animal Care Center, a non-kill shelter that was established with the goal of finding homes for abandoned animals in the Orange County area. The 2009 dog races raised roughly $15,000.
There are wiener dog races held in various locations in California, including races held monthly during the summer at Old World Village in Huntington Beach.
