The undefeated Allens Cash on March 4 set the 250-yard world record at Hipodromo de las Americas in Mexico City.

The 7-year-old stallion is owned by Ruben Falcon Vidal, and becomes the first horse to set a world record outside of the United States.

In the $35,577 Clasico Velocidad, he sprinted to a 1 1/2-length victory in a time of :12.588. It lowers by nearly 2/10ths the previous world record – which was also set by Allens Cash. In the race trials on February 19, he lowered the previous record, set by Blushin Bugs in 2001, by 2/100ths to :12.720. He returned in the final to lower the record again.

Allens Cash was trained by Marco Luna and ridden by Ismael Parra. He is now undefeated in five starts, with earnings of $38,312. In January, he won his division of the Clasico Inaugural.

Allens Cash is by Shazoom and out of the Thoroughbred mare Allen’s Cashmere, by Allen’s Prospect. Bred in Kentucky by Bob and Bill Austin of Versailles, Allens Cash was sold at the 2006 Heritage Place Yearling Sale for $6,500.
