2 Standardbreds - retired racehorses - both raced on the pace

Worlds record is 1.49 over a mile. My math skills suck, but I'm sure someone can put that in mph.
That is pulling a race bike not being ridden
If my math skills don't suck...a 1:49 mile is a bit over 33 mph

I have seen racking horses hit that number on a straight away...Best my boy did at a rack was very close to 25mph
