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 ...

1995 Belmont Stakes - Thunder Gulch : Full ABC Broadcast [01:04:11]
With his star, Timber Country, back in the barn recovering from a virus, the trainer D. Wayne Lukas marched into the racing record books yesterday when his other colt, Thunder Gulch, won the 127th Belmont Stakes by two lengths after a tingling duel down the homestretch with Nick Zito's Star Standard. Lukas became the first trainer ever to win five straight triple crown races, which he did with three horses, and the first to sweep the triple crown with two horses: the absent Timber Country, who won the Preakness three weeks ago, and Thunder Gulch, who won the Kentucky Derby five weeks ago. "I'm overwhelmed and very, very happy," Lukas said. "Everything fell into place. When it got down to one horse with Timber Country out, it all rested on Thunder Gulch's shoulders. And he was ready." He has been getting ready since last November, when he won the Remsen Stakes at Aqueduct and began a string of successes that catapulted him from his rank as a second-string horse in a Lukas barn crammed with stars: second in the Hollywood Futurity, first in the Fountain of Youth Stakes, first in the Florida Derby, first in the Kentucky Derby and third in the Preakness. And after his stablemate was scratched because of the virus and a fever, which subsided yesterday, Thunder Gulch added the $697400 Belmont Stakes as the flag bearer of the stable. He stalked an exceedingly slow pace set by Star Standard, ridden by Julie Krone, who crossed over from the outside post position immediately after ...

1989 Belmont Stakes: Full ABC Broadcast [01:05:24]
Easy Goer finally lived up to his spectacular promise of early spring yesterday when he roared past Sunday Silence on the turn for home and won the 121st Belmont Stakes by eight lengths. In doing so, he prevented Sunday Silence from becoming racing's 12th Triple Crown winner. Earlier this year, Easy Goer looked like the next Secretariat, a colt of limitless potential who might set new standards of excellence. Then, after second-place finishes in the Kentucky Derby and the Preakness, Easy Goer seemed likelier to emulate his father, Alydar, who in 1978 became the only horse to finish second in all three Triple Crown races, losing each leg of the Triple Crown to Affirmed. But yesterday, there was talk of Secretariat again. Easy Goer's winning Belmont time of 2:26.01 under Pat Day over a fast but not unusually quick track was the second-fastest Belmont ever, behind only Secretariat's 1973 world-record clocking of 2:24. Easy Goer's performance ranks as one of the most impressive in the history of the sport. $1 Million Bonus Sunday Silence actually earned more in defeat than the winner's purse of $413520, getting a $1 million Triple Crown bonus for the best overall record in the three races. But he would have earned $2.5 million more, and a certain place in the sport's Hall of Fame, with a victory. Instead, he might be considered only the second-best 3-year-old of this year unless he can beat Easy Goer again. Easy Goer, a chestnut-colored son of Alydar and Relaxing, bred and ...
