Man o' War won the 1920 Belmont Stakes in a time of 2 minutes 14 and 1/5 seconds. He went off at odds of 1 to 20 and won by 20 lengths. The Belmont was a shorter race when Man O' War won it than what is today.At the time of his victory it was a mile and three eigths.Experts say Secretariat ran that distance in 2:11 and one fifth.
