Best Answer

* Secretariat holds the record with a speed of 1 minute 59.4 seconds in 1973. * Sham in the same race is credited with a sub two minute run at 1 minute 59.99 seconds. However the timing system used was not adequately accurate to certify for the showhorse. Sham is credited with being the only sub two minute loser of the Run for the Roses. * Monarchos in 2001 clocked the race in 1 minute 59.97 seconds.

*Secretariat 1973 1 minute 53 seconds flat

Tank's Prospect 1985 1 min 53 seconds 2/5ths

Louis Quatorze 1996 1 min 53 seconds 2/5ths

Gate Dancer 1984 1 min 53 secons 3/5ths

* Secretariat's time in the 1973 Preakness was flawed when the timer malfunctioned. Using modern technology, it was shown he won in 1:53 flat, and now holds all three Triple Crown records.
