Who was the fastest horse?

Browse → Animals → Large Mammals
While horses can generally run up to 38 miles per hour (61 km/h), the fastest breed of horse is the American Quarter Horse, which can reach up to 55 m/h (88 km/h) for short periods of time! 

One of the most famous (and fastest) horses in the history of racing is a horse named Secretariat, who competed from 1972 until 1973. He was a Triple Crown Winner (meaning he won the three most famous horse races in America all in the same year), and set race records that still stand today!
In fact, his win at the 1973 Belmont Stakes (another famous horse race) was so impressive that breeders doubt it will ever be beat.
