FAST

She doesn’t look very fast does she? But in a few years this young thoroughbred foal, who was bred by my brother in law, will be amazingly fast racing around the track.


So how fast do racehorses go? The current world record for 1 mile is held by Mr. Light, 1:31.41 set at Gulfstream Park in January of 2005. This works out to 39.38 MPH. Over the shorter distance of a quarter mile the fastest time was set by No Secrets Here in 2006, :20.886. If you do the math, that works out to 43.091 MPH.

I’d say that was pretty fast, wouldn’t you?

HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND EVERYONE
