whippet sized greyhounds

Recommended Posts

over 20 odd years of raceing greyhounds i have had a few small greyhounds but they were all bitches and sprinters struggeled to get the normal distance some were smaller than a large whippet but all were pure bred raceing greyhounds with there raceing id card.

A greyhound that size would be a runt - you'd be better off with a good whippy or grew.

Midget greyhounds whatever next...smh.

My ex-courser is small at 26" and 30kg, my other grey is 30.5 " and 35 kg - THESE ARE BOTH BITCHES. I've met dogs that have weighed 50kg.

24tts might be small for a greyhound but that's far too big to be classed as a true whippet, 22tts is close though.

:hmm:

 

The best greyhound who ever lived was a runt greyhound and many people doubted his abilities as well.

I ran a 23" Greyhound bitch in a few "No Limit" non ped scratch races over 150 yards in '71-'72, and some of the half cross Grews could beat her; but when they tried to match her around 2 bends, 270 yards, she beat them fairly easily. Now, 23" wouldn't be out of place for a Non Ped Whippet !

 

Cheers.

flapping is a dying sport tracks closing every year flapping is unlicenced greyhound racing exactly the same as normal racing but without all the red tape just bought a little bitch that would pass for a big whippet tiny little thing cracking race record though check her out on data rushmore bonnie .
