Each week we spotlight a history-making moment by an equine legend–like Secretariat’s legendary run in 1973 Kentucky Derby.

The track record Secretariat set on that day (1:592⁄5) stands to this day. Another unique characteristic of that race was that he ran each quarter-mile segment faster than the one before it–the successive quarter-mile times were 251⁄5, 24, 234⁄5, 232⁄5, and 23. This means he was still accelerating as of the final quarter-mile of the race.
After the Derby, Secretariat went on to win the Triple Crown.
