Secretariat’s Preakness

It's easy now, 40 years later, to look back and think Secretariat was a lock for the Triple Crown.

Well, here's what actually did happen. And no, this is not some Hollywood depiction of a horse race where the equine star passes his rivals as if they are going in slow motion.
