Big Earthquake? No Worries, Continue The Greyhound Dog Race

This week, there was an earthquake in New Zealand, reaching 6.2 on the Richter scale.
Items were knocked off shelves at this
New Zealand store during an earthquake this
week, but the folks and dogs at a racetrack
barely noticed it.  

It caused relatively minor damage, cut power to a few thousand people and gave the region quite a scare.

Except at the dog track. As you can see in the video, a greyhound dog race went off without a hitch even though things were shaking like mad.

The announcer got a little excited, but the dogs just did their job and ran their race.

It looks like bystanders watching the race were pretty much unperturbed, too.

The rest of the day's races were called off because of fears of road and other damage around. But still. I guess earthquakes are no big deal at the dog track.
