Magic world record by Sebastian K. in Mohegan Sun Invitational

Sebastian K. trotted the fastest mile ever in harness racing history, finishing in 1:49 on Saturday night in the Mohegan Sun Invitational at Pocono Downs. All age, all gender, all size track–it was an “all everything” world record.

Sebastian K, an 8-year-old stallion who has raced four times in the U.S. since arriving from Sweden during the winter, broke the record of 1:49.3 set by Enough Talk in 2008. Sebastian K, Sweden’s Horse of the Year in 2012, was driven by trainer Ake Svanstedt.

‘It’s an amazing mile for a horse,” assistant trainer Bernie Noren said. ”To have a horse like this, come here and do the world record with Ake as trainer and the driver, he’s such a phenomenal animal. ‘He raced very handily last time, he usually waits, but last time he didn’t, he just took off. He trained a mile Wednesday and he’s been in the paddock all week, just enjoying life. That’s what we do with all our horses, make sure they enjoy life.”

Sebastian K. has won all four of his starts in the U.S. for owner Knutsson Trotting. He hasn’t trotted slower than 1:50.3 and set a record for most wins in 1:50.3 or faster. Modern Family was seven lengths back in second, and Arch Madness finished third.
