Assuming that you’re being serious, Alex, there used to be a dog track (greyhound racing) at Harringay. I’m not sure if Harringay and Haringey are one and the same.

They are essentially one and the same. Haringey is the London Borough, whereas Harringay is a smaller district within the borough. Obviously one name is a derivative of the other.

The dog track was the biggest purpose built greyhound stadium in the UK and was considered as the home of dog racing in London. It was also used for speedway and, in 1937, for an experimental Cheetah racing event!! It closed in 1987 and was sadly demolished to make way for a Sainsburys and some housing.
