As a result, I don't want to give any more away. I'll just note that when the announcer calls how big a margin of victory Secretariat won by, he later acknowledges that it's just a guess, and it could be more. He's right. It was more. All I'll say is that he was six lengths short...
The race begins about 45 seconds in, so don't worry about there being a long build-up. What's interesting is how few horses were in the race, only five. But it didn't matter. No one was beating Secretariat that day, who set a track record.
Even if you don't tend to watch horse racing, this is a race to watch.
This is how you win the Triple Crown.
