Mr. Light holds the record for the fastest (officially

recorded) mile ever run by a horse. The horse was 6 years old and

118lbs. It was recorded at Gulfstream Park 1/03/2005. The time was

131.41 seconds. The race was run on turf.

Note: The previous record was held for more than 30 years (1968)

by Dr. Fager on a dirt track and a time of 132.20. See Web
