My prefix is where I reside.

My suffix is why I hide.

My infix suggests greed.

I'm also known for speed.

I step on nails,

I leave you trails.

Hint 2:

I think you are a

stallion

My prefix is where I reside.

a horse stall

My suffix is why I hide.

lion --> a predator

My infix suggests greed.

all --> coveting everything

I'm also known for speed.

a racehorse

Hints:

I step on nails: horseshoes are attached through nails.

I leave you trails: as pointed out by Stiv, the horse hoofprints are U-shaped due to the shape of the horseshoe. My original remark: something to do with trail riding or horse racing tracks?

A seagull

My prefix is where I reside.

At sea

My suffix is why I hide.

To gull: to deceive

My infix suggests greed.

Ag is the chemical symbol for silver (holding on to too much silver?).

I'm also known for speed.

Not the fastest birdie out there, but check out this article.
