Ready to run

The Ready to Run graphic was part of a feature story about greyhound racing in the March 2021 issue of National Geographic magazine. Dog racing has been declining in the United States and Florida, one of the last states where the practice was still legal, closed all it’s tracks recently. Greyhounds, long bred to race competitively, will mostly be retired as pets, but the attributes that make them the fastest dogs in the world will remain in their physique and behavior.
