Greyhound Racing Trivia

2nd Fastest mammals
Greyhounds are the 2nd fastest mammals on the planet, just behind cheetahs! In about 1,5 sec., that is just six strikes, they reach the speed of 72 kilometres per hour !

28 seconds is all that it takes greyhounds to cover 480 meter track! Human athlete would need twice as much time!

Unlike humans, these dogs do not change their speed when they are entering a tight bend because of different mechanisms in humans and greyhounds for producing power and supporting weights.

Greyhounds have peculiar manner of placing feet when running. During full stride, the dog is twice off the ground which is referred to as a double suspension gallop.

Aggresiveness is NOT the reason why greyhounds are muzzled in races. Muzzles are necessary to protect their delicate skin which is prone to ruptures.
