1999 Belmont Stakes - Lemon Drop Kid : Full ABC Broadcast [01:01:11]
Charismatic, standing on the threshold of sweeping the Triple Crown, missed his date with history yesterday when he ran third in the Belmont Stakes behind the 29-1 long shot Lemon Drop Kid. And, worse, in a stunning finish to the saga of the colt who won the Kentucky Derby and Preakness at long odds, Charismatic fractured two bones in his left front leg as he crossed the finish line. The injury did not appear to be life-threatening but it ended his racing career. It also brought a sorrowful close to what had been a rousing day at Belmont Park, with a record crowd of 85818 on hand in perfect weather to see if Charismatic could become the first horse in 21 years to win the Triple Crown. Instead, he became the 15th horse, and the third in three years, to win the Derby and Preakness but fail to cross the finish line first in the mile-and-a-half race. Charismatic, who ran in a claiming race in February before surging to the top of the 3-year-old racing world in the past two months, will undergo surgery late this morning. Dr. Larry Bramlage, a veterinarian from Lexington, Ky., reported that the colt had cracked the cannon bone just above the ankle and had fractured the sesamoid behind it. ''It is not life-threatening,'' Bramlage said, ''but it definitely means his racing career is over. However, he should be fine as a stallion.'' Chris Antley, the jockey who overcame problems of weight and substance abuse and made a roaring comeback aboard Charismatic in the Derby and the ...

1997 Preakness Stakes - Full Broadcast [01:08:08]
Silver Charm, who won the Kentucky Derby over Captain Bodgit by the length of his gray head, provided a smashing encore today when he won the 122d Preakness by the same head over Free House, with Captain Bodgit third by another head in a three-horse blanket finish. And he set the stage for the Belmont Stakes in three weeks, when he will be racing to become the first colt in 19 years to sweep the Triple Crown. The three rivals re-enacted their photo-finish performances of two weeks ago before 88594 spectators at Pimlico Race Course with a slight reshuffling of the order behind Silver Charm -- but with the same tingling drive to the wire -- in the closest Preakness in 65 years. The top three once more delivered a formful race, outrunning the leading outsider, Touch Gold, who did not appear in the Derby and who stumbled badly at the start of the Preakness. He closed to finish fourth, within 1 1/4 lengths of the three front-runners flying at the head of the field of 10. 'And we're going for the Triple Crown,'' shouted Bob Lewis, the California beer distributor who owns Silver Charm with his wife, Beverly. ''We need this badly in thoroughbred racing. May the best horse win at Belmont Park.'' Silver Charm is the first horse to have a chance at the Triple Crown in the Belmont since 1989, when Sunday Silence lost the Belmont to Easy Goer, whom he had outrun in the Derby and the Preakness. Bob Baffert, the white-haired, blithe spirit of racing who trains Silver Charm, has waited ...

1998 Dubai World Cup - Silver Charm -vs- Swain [02:07]
In a dramatic finish, the Kentucky Derby and Preakness winner Silver Charm nosed out Swain of Dubai to win the $4 million Dubai World Cup yesterday and double his career earnings. Ridden by the Hall of Famer Gary Stevens, the 4-year-old earned the $2.4 million first prize for his owners, Bob and Beverly Lewis, with a courageous rally. Silver Charm's previous earnings had totaled $2.2 million. Silver Charm, the prohibitive favorite, first repulsed strong challenges from Loup Sauvage of France and Malek, the surprise winner of the Santa Anita Handicap. Then, Swain came up and briefly grabbed the lead in the stretch. As the two pounded toward the finish line, Silver Charm fought back and barely edged in front. I knew it was going to be a competitive race, said Stevens, who rode Silver Charm shortly after guiding Annus Mirablis of Dubai to victory in the $500000 Dubai Duty Free race. He's the greatest horse I've ridden. I knew I had a great chance, but I knew they weren't going to give it away, Bob Baffert, Silver Charm's trainer, said. Silver Charm broke second from the gate and stayed behind another horse from the United States, Behrens, until the top of the stretch. He then took the lead, only to be challenged by Loup Sauvage and Malek. After putting them away, he faced the challenge of the hard-charging Swain. But Silver Charm prevailed in 2 minutes 9 2/5 seconds for the mile and a quarter. Loup Sauvage finished third, with Malek fourth. Race video donated by Jeff Mende..
