Yes, and pp. B394-395 have specific rules for changing course when using it, which qualify exact what a "relatively straight, smooth course" is. The text there says, "It's possible to go so fast that you can't easily stop or change course," but "can't easily" isn't the same as "can't."

Those rules still don't fit for most real world animals. Large fast not super agile ones like horses, sure, but not most others that I've watched on television.
They don't take 30-50 feet distance to change directions.

I get that like many rules, that's not what was intended, but that's what was written. Like how Discriminatory Smell's literal write up being normal for many humans, but not at all what was intended.
