    Thirty-nine years after winning the Preakness Stakes, Secretariat has set the race record at the second leg of the Triple Crown. The Maryland Racing Commission decided on Tuesday that Secretariat actually ran the 1973 race in 1 minute, 53 seconds, nearly two seconds faster than the official time of 1:54 2/5. That determination means the famed thoroughbred, who died in 1989, will hold the race records at each of the three Triple Crown races.

    Secretariat's owner, Penny Chenrey, requested a hearing last week to look into her horse's official time at the Preakness. After an investigation, the commission unanimously voted to change the time.

    Greatest horse ever with respects to Man o' War. About time they rectified that.
