Spped Records, What are they?

Hello People

Need some help on speed records? What are they basically and whats their purpose . How do u interpret or make use of them

Thanks in advance  :slight_smile:

Speed records are basically that, a record of the fastest time a specific distance has been run in.  They’re mostly useful for breeding purposes I’d imagine, since you can brag that your horse set speed records at various distances.  Also probably useful in picking horses to buy (won who’s set a speed record is presumably worth more than one who hasn’t).  But mostly I treat them as interesting pieces of trivia, especially since with all the programs that have been used to run races in the past, it’s hard to compare between generations with them.
