Took off like Snyder's hound

My mother, who was from East Tennessee, used to say that someone "took off like Snyder's hound" meaning very fast. I see by looking through the archives that a few others have heard this expression (which I've always liked), but not many - and I find no origin for it. Does anyone know more?
