Staying in the Hotel? Oglebay Breakfast!

It’s hot. It’s a buffet. It’s seasonal. It’s huge. And it comes with your room rate!

Join us every morning in the Ihlenfeld Dining Room

for Oglebay’s famous buffet breakfast!

Going coursing too early to enjoy breakfast at Oglebay? 

We have you covered!

A complimentary continental breakfast will be offered at Sandscrest

(our coursing site) Monday–Wednesday at 7:30 AM.

Coffee/tea/hot chocolate/muffins/donuts/bottled water will be served.


Coursing Lunches:

Monday – Wednesday: Entering any running events at Sandscrest? Unlike most coursing venues, ours has a catering kitchen! Lunch is being partially sponsored by a private donor!  Each kennel entered will receive 1 complimentary lunch. Additional lunches will be available at $12 each.

Boxed lunches from Sandscrest include a sandwich*, bag of chips, piece of fruit, cookie and/or granola bar, and bottle of water.

* Monday: Chicken salad slider sandwich

Tuesday: Ham & cheese wrap

If you pre-enter LGRA racing or ASFA or AKC coursing, you will AUTOMATICALLY receive one free lunch for the day(s) you enter, thanks to a very generous donor. You don’t need to sign up, buy the store product, or do anything — you will automatically get the lunch. 


  • Only pre-entries qualify for the free lunch. Day-of entries do not qualify — yet another great reason to pre-enter!
  • The free lunch is per person, not per entry. 
  • FastCAT, QC’s, JC’s, and puppy fun runs do not qualify for the free lunch.
  • If you need additional lunches for friends or family or want lunch at Sandscrest on a day you are not running a dog, please order here  Coursing lunches
  • And if you have special dietary needs, please contact us here  at Food Allergies
