LEX (18) — Secretariat is the winner of this year's virtual Kentucky Derby Triple Crown Showdown.

A computer algorithm of the greatest horses of all-time ran a simulated Kentucky Derby due to the coronavirus pandemic suspending the original run for the roses.

The virtual field included Secretariat, Sir Barton, Gallant Fox, Omaha, War Admiral, Whirlaway, Count Fleet, Assault, Citation, Seattle Slew, Affirmed, American Pharoah and Justify.
