At one time there was. Not sure if it is still there or not.

Derby Lane still does it, right over the Gandy Bridge in St. Petersburg. Tampa Greyhound is either strictly poker or it has simulcast as well.

I seem to recall signs for greyhound racing off of I-275 (north of I-4, near Busch or further up). I don't know if they still have racing there anymore.

It is a gambling place now, no more greyhound racing.

Not a fan of this but I hear they have a decent eating place at Derby Lanes.
It was used for filming the first Ocean's Eleven film !
