I had one, but sadly died before she was two. Showing great promise though. I’ve seen a few work and course in the old coursing club I was with. I think the mating was a lurcher bitch, put to a coursing dog. All 3 bitches I see work were mustard. Only small, about 23” but could course and hunt for fun.

Make sure and use one that’s done plenty graft & picked up minimal injuries, ignore the big names do some research and find something that’s actually been tested.

when I first started most saluki crosses were with knock about lurhers as that was what lads were running, adding saluki pepped them up, seemed to take them to another level, and of course line breeding created the coursing dog, it would be nice to take a step back my originals were a mix of bedlington greyhound whippet and saluki so I will prob us a decent beddy gray, two seventys bitches line bred from my original bitch fly both small but mighty the lighter coloured bitch killed several foxs in fine style just had a knack..

I think if I was to take a litter from my bitch, then I'd be looking for a fast type coursing dog to go over her, lighten up the pups, hopefullyadd  more gears and stamina🙏.... Maybe? Maybe not? 😁

when people add greyhound to speed things up or lighten things up, stamina drops, at least coursing blood wont do that.

Fathers saluki x grey on one side & lurcher x lurcher on other. Suppose if I worked out % she would be 3/4 saluki x grey, 1/4 lurcher x lurcher 

Most coursing bred is saluki lurcher I don’t get what you mean when you say they make for a better stronger more versatile dog so if you cross a saluki bred dog that an all rounder to a coursing bred Sal x you get a better hound

Adding the lurcher x lurcher blood to the coursing dog gives you a tougher & more versatile dog than just a straight Sal x grey. Notice a less scatty temperament as well not as sensitive, easier trained.

Tbh I think “coursing bred” stuff, your Romeo, Jamie, Scouser dogs are like their own breed, had home bred Sal/grey no big names and it was totally different from those types.
