One of the greatest trotting horses that ever raced was a gray gelding by the name of Greyhound. He won 71 of 82 heats and 33 of 37 full races. His other achievements, which included setting the world trotting record in 1938, won him a place in the Harness Horse Hall of Fame in 1971. Other types of sighthounds are also extremely fast.

A noteworthy fiscal policy of the time provided that tax revenues be used to fund these canine funerals and cemeteries.
