That time was actually 1:44.3. The "disputed" Grass track was surveyed as a re-check for accuracy before there was a submission to IAAF for a world record.
Grass Tracks, if prepared well can be excellent.
I survey and mark a grass rrack every year (done so for 29 years) for a High School Annual Athletic (Track & Field Sports). I have permanent marker pegs which I am amazed are still very accurate.
Don't forget that the same grass Track that Snell ran 3:54.4 for a mile had a 3:53.8 run on it 4 years later (Jurgen May)with Kip Keino second.
