According to this, the total time has Secretariat winning by 2.5 seconds. How far ahead would be determined by the competing horses in both races The final quarter time for Pharaoh was .68 second faster than Secretariat, so the jockey’s holding Am Pharaoh back for most of the racer figures in as well. It takes nothing away from Pharoah’s well deserved accomplishments.
