The Wall Street Journal did a split screen video comparing the performance of the 1973 Triple Crown winner to this year’s.
There is something wrong with your calculation. One second equals 6 lengths on a fast track, so if American Pharoah ran 3 seconds slower than Secretariat then he finished 18 lengths behind, noton Secretariat’s heels as the photo suggests. Or maybe I missed something.
