Yankee Cruiser's sub 1:49.3 victory in the North America Cup was the second-fastest clocking in the history of the Cup final. Want to know more about speed in the Cup?

Last year Red River Hanover set the set the stakes record for the race when he won in 1:48.4. Yankee Cruiser's time is one of three sub-1:50 miles in the history of Cup finals. The Panderosa is the only other sub-1:50 winner of a Cup final thanks to his 1:49.4 victory in the 1999 edition of the race.

This year's Cup did generate other speed records. Allamerican Native's :53.2 clocking to the half was the fastest in Cup history, knocking the :53.3 postings set by both Sealed N Delivered (1998) and Real Desire (2001) off of the stat sheet. This year's 1:21 three-quarter clocking-with Allamerican Native still leading--was also a record, bumping the 1:21.3 standard set by Sealed N Delivered.
