Commission Votes To Adjust Secretariat’s 1973 Preakness Time
And he’s still making news.
The Maryland Racing Commission just voted to adjust his winning race time in the 1973 Preakness.
It was 1:54 2/5.
Now, it’s officially 1:53.
That means Secretariat holds the record for the fastest-ever Preakness race time.
The race time was reinvestigated at the request of his owner, Penny Chenery.
