Preakness record to Secretariat
BALTIMORE – Secretariat’s winning time in the 1973 Preakness has been changed to reflect that the Triple Crown-winning colt’s time was actually faster than the stakes record.
The Maryland Racing Commission voted 7-0 on Tuesday in a special hearing at Laurel Park to change the official time of the race from 1:542⁄5 to 1:53. That gives Secretariat records in each of his three Triple Crown races – the Kentucky Derby, Preakness and Belmont Stakes – that still stand.
The commission investigated the official timing of the Preakness at the request of Secretariat’s 90-year-old owner, Penny Chenery, and Pimlico president Tom Chuckas.
