Contents: Greyhound was a grey Standardbred gelding by Guy Abbey out of Elizabeth by Peter the Great. Born in 1932, Greyhound was the outstanding trotting horse of his day and arguably the most outstanding in the history of the sport. He was nicknamed "The Great Grey Ghost" and "Silver-skinned Flyer." In 1935, he won the Hambletonian race and in 1938 he lowered the record time for trotting the mile to 1:55¼. This record stood until 1969.
This short book chronicles Greyhound's racing career beginning as a two-year old in 1935 through his final races in 1939. Illustrated with photographs.
Greyhound was retired in 1940, inducted into the Harness Racing Hall of Fame and died in 1965 at the age of 33.
