Secretariat won the Preakness Stakes 39 years ago, but it wasn't until now that he had the record for the fastest time for the Preakness. That was due to a malfunction in the timer that clocks the race. It had him clocked at 1:54 2/5.
After a hearing Friday, the Maryland Racing Commission changed his win time to 1:53. Secretariat now holds the records in all 3 of the triple crown races he won.
