The American Quarter Horse Journal, June 15, 2011 – The 4-year-old stallion Neversaynever has officially captured the 330 yard world record. The gray, owned by Tony Sedillo and Sherri Galvez, on February 27 raced to a time of :15.859 at Sunland Park, and the mark was approved by AQHA.
The time lowers Wcrseperateandcool’s record of :15.951 set 21 days earlier at the same track.
Neversaynever set the record in a starter allowance for horses 4 and up. He was trained by Tony Sedillo and ridden by Miguel Perez, and won the race by two lengths while earning a 124 speed index. There was a 28 mph tailwind during the race over a fast track.
The verification of the new record was pending when Vaughn Cook’s Ivory Riches raced to a 330-yard time of :15.922 on May 30 at Arapahoe Park, which appeared to be faster than Wcrseperateandcool’s time, but is slower than Neversaynever’s time.
Bred by MJ Farms, Neversaynever is out of the Thoroughbred mare Numbered Lady, by Polish Navy. He has won five of 12 lifetime starts and earned $63,862.
