Mahmoud

      (foaled 1933), racehorse (Thoroughbred), the fastest horse ever to run in the Derby, making a record time of 2:33 4/5.

      Mahmoud was foaled in France by Mah Mahal and sired by Blenheim. He was owned by the Aga Khan who sent him to England to be trained by Frank Butters at Newmarket. He won all three of his races as a two-year-old, and as a three-year-old he lost the Two Thousand Guineas by a short head, but then, with Charlie Smirke as jockey, he won the Derby, setting the record. After being retired from racing and sent to stud in 1940, he was sold in the United States.
