Whippet recall??

hey a friend of mine has just got a whippet puppy.
the pup is only ten weeks old but my friend is adament that the pup will never be let off the lead, because "whippets have no recall" and they will kill small dogs.

are whippets that hard to teach a recall?
if they are trained from day one?
are they that likely to kill small dogs etc if they are well socialised from day one also?

her friend lost a whippet after it chased a rabbit completely out of a "secure" park and into a main road so her fears aren’t completely unfounded but as she is planning on taking the pup to training classes surely it could hav a fairly reliable recall?
