RESEARCHER (1994)

RECORD SET AT CHARLES TOWN RACES

 

Researcher raced under Rutledge Farm colors to set a new 1 1/8 mile track record.  In that performance, Researcher also ran a record Equibase Speed Figure of 133 , which was the highest Speed Figure for North American racing that year, establishing him as an underdog who became one of racing’s all-time greatest.  As of early 2018, no horse in North American racing has ever run a faster Equibase Speed Figure.
