Re: T. rex vs Edmontosaurus speed

Re speed vs. musculature, let's for the moment make a loose general analogy with other animals, horses for example. If musculature is directly related to speed, that would imply that Belgians, Percherons, and Clydesdales are faster than Thoroughbreds. Is that in fact, the case? In a similar vein, would a mastiff be expected to outrun a greyhound or whippet?

including the conjecture that it could have outrun T. rex (based on examination of Dakota's muscles).
