They are sensitive but biddable and trainable, I find them easy to live with, I'd put them somewhere between a greyhound and a saluki temperament wise. They have high prey drive and will run themselve

Got mine in training for the battle of the slop bashers 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿🍷

How do they score a galgo course ?

all i can find is they have to run 35 seconds from when the hare gets up before the course starts then it has to last 55 seconds or it's a no course. This is in Portugal don't know if Spain is the same.

Well I've seen galgoes run black tail jacks over cactas filled desert in New mexico and the the frkers can catch. Ive also seen saluki hybreds and pure saluki do the same. 

How did the three compare?

The hybrids and the galgoes were both very capable the one of the galgoes did not miss once in a race he was like an exist missile the hybrids had harder ground but ran jack rabbits to a stand still with left. The pure salukies were not the quality of the other two.

I've spoken to a couple that have Galgos in new mexico, they rate them as decent catch dogs.

The scoring is similar to English coursing, score for 1st in the run up and turn, then turns/work scores as the course goes on, so a fast dog that catches can get a quick win but as the course goes on a slower type can build up its scores to win. 

Bear in mind that those  entering the top competitions are just the tip of the iceberg, there are thousands of people running their dogs as a hobby to catch a hare or compete against their mates etc. 

Ps the Spanish like a dog that takes the hare.
