Thanks fiveO - The photos illustrate two very different types of action and make for good talking points - the first photo requires a good short shutter/lag and if that's the type of action the OP is after that's great. The second photo is a more challenging task - and it's a good shot for the OP to think about if that's the type of framing and IQ they're after.
Or is their expectation to get action IQ that matches still image IQ:
Or if they are expecting to shoot a bit tighter.
Note: I personally am not a fan of dog racing and I don't want to derail the discussion but I wanted to show some photos for comparison - just to be sure the OP has expectations that match the equipment being considered

for my part, shooting moving dogs has been limited - I did it to test the AF on a new camera/lens - not the sharpest shot of a moving dog but I wouldn't recommend 300mm at f2.8 as a good setting for that:

I would try the Panasonic FZ100 as the video would be good and the 5 Shot AF Burst Mode would be excellent...
