In other words, it's 0.3960 times the speed of Secretariat, and the speed of Secretariat is 2.530 times that amount.
(at Belmont Stakes, 1973)
Setting a record finish, Secretariat ran the Belmont Stakes — a 12 furlong race length — in 2:24, for an average speed of 101,000 furlongs per fortnight in 1973. His margin of victory in the race, also a record-setter, was 31 lengths.
