Description Secretariat expected to be triple crown winner

Article about the race horse Secretariat and a projection that he will be the first Triple Crown winner in twenty-five years, from the May 30, 1972 edition of the Pictou Advocate. 

The article also mentions that Secretariat's final time for the Preakness Race was changed to the backup time, which would mean he didn't break a record. However, in 2012 it was finally decided that his time was 1:53, which was the record.
