New Secretariat Preakness time
More than 39 years since Secretariat won the Preakness on his way to a Triple Crown, the Maryland Racing Commission ruled Tuesday that he had actually what was then a track record – and is still a race record – by traversing the mile-and-three-sixteenths in 1:53.
Secretariat now holds race records in all three Triple Crown races.
The commission investigated at the request of Secretariat’s 90-year-old owner, Penny Chenery, and Pimlico president Tom Chuckas.
The electronic scoreboard at Pimlico timed the colt in 1:55. Several hand clockers from the Daily Racing Form reported timing the run at 1:53 2/5. The track’s official timer recorded 1:54 2/5.
The commission heard more than two hours of testimony, backed by modern technology.
