So the local (very active) Borzoi coursing club set up a 200 yd track with electronic timers on either end. It was slightly up hill and we had a little bit of wind later, but very nice out. So Zest! was clocked at 23 mph. Now in all fairness, she is currently at her winter weight and not a lean mean running machine at the moment. I'm anxious to see what her speed will be in a few months. Pearl-petual Motion the malinois was a little faster (25, I think). One of the greyhounds was clocked at 38? I think. It was a lot of fun and they had a great turn out. This was the first sort of thing like that in this area.
Anyone else had the opportunity to do this? Really wish I could have done this with Digital 10 or 12 years ago. I did "run" Digital since he was bugging the heck out of me before we left. But he decided 100 yds was enough!
