It is believed that Zilco harness racing began in the mid 1700's and that the first recorded race took place in Newmarket Heath on 29th August 1750. Some notable horses recorded in history are Phenomena, a 14.3hh mare, who achieved some incredible times throughout her career including 17 miles in 53minutes at age 12 years. At the age of 23 years she still strutted 9 miles in 28.5 minutes. Creeping Sally, a blind 14hh mare who was challenged to complete 50 miles within 5 hours, arrived back 16 minutes under the time. Today the British mile record is held by Doonbeg in a time of 1m 53.7 secs.
