The severe constraints imposed on the parameter space of the minimal split supersymmetry model by the infrared fixed point solution of the top Yukawa coupling Y-t are studied in detail in terms of the value of the top-quark mass measured at the Tevatron together with the lower bound on the lightest Higgs mass established by LEP. The dependence of the Higgsino mass parameter mu, the gaugino coupling strengths g(u,d), g(u,d)(') and of the Higgs quartic self-coupling lambda on the value of Y-t in the vicinity of the Landau pole is discussed. A few interesting features emerge, though the model is found to be disfavored within the infrared fixed point scenario because of the need to have several unnatural cancellations at work on account of the requirement of a low upper bound on tan beta.
