Always B Miki is the U14 Champion pacer that retired as the Fastest Horse of All Time.

Trained by Jimmy Takter, Always B Miki’s racetrack deeds moved him to state: “I think this could be the greatest horse that ever lived.”

As a younger horse, he raced mainly at Hoosier Park in Indiana but came to national prominence in his three-year-old season. Favoured to win the final of the Breeders Crown 3YO Colt & Gelding Pace, the colt fractured his leg before the race and needed to undergo surgery.

After a long layoff, he returned to win the 2015 Breeders Crown Open Pace. At age five, he won several major races and set multiple speed records including a world record of 1:46 at The Red Mile. He received the 2016 Dan Patch Award for Harness Horse of the Year.

His race record is below:
