    What was his winning time? 2:03.6? FOUR (4) seconds slower than Secretariat, and one of the slowest races in recent history. Nothing special about this horse.

    That horse was jogging the last quarter mile. He was in no danger and there was no late charge in relaion to Chrome justvwith the rest of the field.
