Can you please check my answers?

They're fairly simple but I needed to make sure I'm correct.

1st Question:

Citation finished one length ahead of Seattle Slew.

Spectacular Bid finished ahead of Citation but behind Secretariat.

2nd and last question.

A ball rebounds one half of the height from which is it dropped.

If the ball is dropped from a height of 128 feet and keeps bouncing, how far will it have traveled all together when it strikes the ground for the 5th time?
