I do have to add here that modern technology or not, they are fudging at some level when they give a "flat time" rather than agreeing to honor the DRF clock which measured 1:53 2/5 (see wikipedia). I am happy for Secretariat to be officially recognized as the fastest runner in the Preakness, but I am not happy that the final time is now being fudged.
