Silver King (2.01 3/4) was pulled from the field due to injury. During Greyhound's career from 1934-1940, he set a total of 14 world records including the 1:55 1/4 record for a gelding trotter which stood for 32 years. Greyhound is still widely considered to be the greatest trotting horse to ever race in the United States.
