A greyhound can achieve speeds of a bit over 45 mph for a limited time.
45 - 6o mph
race horses can reach 30mph+
The top speed recorded of a greyhound dog was taken in Australia March 3rd 2004. "Cheetah" , the amazing greyhound was clocked at a top speed of 84 MPH (wind assisted).
The cheetah, at least in a fairly short race. A greyhound's top speed is between 35 and 40 mph, while the big cat can hit speeds in excess of 60 mph.
The answer to which is faster, a Greyhound or an Italian Greyhound, that the Greyhound would win that race--due hitting its stride at about 40mph, and the Italian Greyhound hitting a top speed of 25mph.Some sites state that the IG--Italian Greyhound can do 45mph (72.4kph, or 20m/s), and that the Greyhound reaches 40mph. [I found these numbers on Wikipedia, under 'Greyhound' and 'Italian Greyhound'--I believe that somebody has "padded" the top speed for the Iggy]Doing further research, the numbers are that a Greyhound runs at 37 - 45 mph (16.5m/s or 59.5kph). I also find that the top speed of an Italian Greyhound is 25mph (40.2kph, or 11.2m/s)My Italian Greyhound can do 100 yards from a standing start at an average speed of 31 mph, so the 25 mph is definitely not right. More than likely their average top speed would be 28-35 mph, depending on size...
The greyhound is the fastest dog - with a top speed around 46 mph, but there are several mammals faster than it. Of course the cheetah is considered the fastest - with a top speed around 68 mph (and as much as 75 mph for very short distances), but it can only sustain it's high speed for a short time so at longer distances a greyhound could actually catch up and pass one in a hypothetical race. Other animals that are faster than a greyhound include: Hare - top speed ~50 mph Blackbuck antelope - top speed ~50 mph Lion - top speed ~50 mph Wildebeest - top speed ~50 mph Springbok antelope - top speed ~55 mph Pronghorn - top speed ~55 mph Ostrich - top speed ~60 mph
At top speed, an Italian greyhound can run up to 40 kph.
A Horse Can Reach It's Top Speed At 45 miles An Hour, How Cool Is That?!
A horse can reach up to about 43 to 44 miles per hour at top speed.
The speed would be that of the horse that pulls it, at top speed about 30-35 miles per hour.
It depends on the horse but up to 55mph
No, a giraffe can not run faster than a horse. A giraffe has a top speed of 32 mph while a horse has a top speed of 54 mph.
An American Quarter horse that is bred to race will be able to sprint at speeds of 40 to 55 MPH over a distance of 440 yards (A quarter mile).
bottom to top
A horse has has a top speed of about 45-50 mph
I believe that the fastest an average quarter horse can run is about thirty to forty mph at top speed.
around 25 to 38 mph !
actually a horses top speed is 40mph which makes it the 4th fastest animal on land
TOP SPEED is a speed rating of a horse for its previous races.
A horse can sprint for about a minute or so, before it needs to stop.
