Best Answer

The fastest horses have reached about 50mph, and greyhounds generally reach speeds of roughly 45mph. Of course, both species have individuals with higher or lower speeds, but generally evidence would lean toward the horse winning a race.

On a horse docket of 3 horses if one wins do you win?

If I understand your question correctly, if only three horses race, would you win no matter what? You would only win if you bet on the winning horse to "win." When you bet on a horse race, you also bet on what position that horse finishes. You may bet on a horse to "win, place, or show" or all three (each bet costs more money). If the horse comes in first, second, or third, and you bet all three, you would still get a payout. There are numerous combinations to wagering, Exactas, Trifectas, etc. and even in a three horse race, if you didn't bet correctly, or on the right horse, you could still lose.
