In Greek mythology, what race of creatures were part man and part horse?

Answer:

Centaur

Centaurs are a race of creatures from Greek mythology with the upper body of a human and the lower body and legs of a horse. In the ancient tales, Centaurs were notorious for lawless barbarism, and represented the untamed, unchecked side of mankind. The centaurs were said to have been born of Ixion and Nephele. As the story goes, Nephele was a cloud made into the likeness of Hera in a plot to trick Ixion into revealing his lust for Hera to Zeus. Ixion seduced Nephele and from that relationship centaurs were created.
