Greyhound was a foal of 1932 by Guy Abbey-Elizabeth. He was purchased from the Almahurst Farm for $900 at an Indianapolis sale as a yearling by Sep Palin for E. J. Baker. As a two-year-old Greyhound lost three races and as a three-year-old lost but two heats, but no races. For the remainder of his career he lost only one race, that as a four-year-old. Greyhound's career from 1934-1940 is as follows: he won 71 heats out of 82, and established no less than 14 world records. They included the 1:55 1/4 in 1938 and the 2:01 3/4 he set in 1940 under saddle during his final official appearance, at Lexington, Kentucky. Greyhound paraded at the first "big time" harness meeting in the United States which was held at Santa Anita Park in California in 1946. He died in Maple Park, Illinois on February 4, 1965.
