Akhal-Teke... makes me think of what the horses in the book The Scorpio Races would look like

A silver-colored Akhal Teke. I cannot actually say what color this is. Probably a gray with a lovely phase of getting white.
The Akhal-Teke is also known as the "gift from the desert" and it was bred for its stamina and speed. It was used by Turkmen nomads. The Akhal-Teke can withstand conditions and certain situations such as going long periods of time without food and water unlike other breeds.This breed of horse is known for its sensitive nature and for its propensity for forming strong attachments to their owners. Today in modern Russia, owning an Akhal-Teke is a sign of wealth.
The Akhal-Teke is a horse breed first found in Turkmenistan. Their main feature is the distinct coat that gleams and this is also what distinguishes them from the other horse breeds.

Akhal Teke - I can really see the resemblance to the greyhound here. Beautiful horse, wish photo included legs and feet.
