lure

the skin-covered object which runs on a monorail on a Greyhound racing track and which the dogs are schooled to chase. The lure must be kept 30 to 40 ft ahead of the leading dog so that the field is stretched out. Bunching of the field is likely to cause too many injuries by bumping and fighting.
