After investigating the timing of 1973 Triple Crown winner Secretariat's Preakness Stakes, the Maryland Racing Commission voted unanimously to change the official time from 1:54 2/5 to 1:53, a stakes record.
Former jockeys Pat Day, Laffit Pincay Jr., Ron Turcotte, Steve Cauthen, and Jean Cruguet have banded together to offer marketing opportunities for interested individuals or organizations.
Surrounded by images of their deceased colt projected on the walls of the Kentucky Derby Museum, Roy and Gretchen Jackson May 1 announced they have selected equine sculptor Alexa King to create a permanent memorial honoring the 2006 Derby victor.
