Now this is just my opinion, and others may disagree, but I think racing bred whippets are faster than working bred, but lack the stamina of the working type.

Ive seen working types lamp rabbits all night, but the racing types seem to tire a lot quicker.

I used racing types for daytime hare and lamping, but they were the non-ped type, not pedigree whippets.

Cheers.

Cheers Chartpolski,working lines more robust would you say,racing line more refined,or not much difference?

I think the lines may be getting a bit blurred now, with racers and workers being crossed, so maybe not so much difference these days 👍

Cheers.

Really, so you'd saluki if you were thinking of crossing with non sighthound blood, they wouldn't have the pace.
