        The American Sighthound Field Association ASFA created the "Miscellaneous over 18" Stake"in 1995 to enable the rare Sighthounds breeds, not recognized by the American Kennel Club, to compete in lure-coursing. These breeds are: Azawakh, Chart Polski, Galgo espanol, Magyar Agar and Sloughi.
       The Miscellaneous stake started in January 1 of 1996. The Sloughi, after running 4 years in the miscellaneous stake over 18", was moved to "provisional" status which started January 1 2000, the next step towards full recognition.
      During those year, the Sloughi competed in coursing against members of its own breed and members of the other 4 rare breeds of Sighthounds.
Year 2001
      The ASFA Conference of Delegates, in Seattle, votes in favor of recognizing the Sloughi as an official ASFA breed. Starting May 1, 2001, the Sloughi courses under the same conditions as other recognized breeds.
