Charismatic (1999)

The rivalry between Charismatic and Menifee was compared to the celebrated pairing of Affirmed and Alydar in 1978. In the end, Charismatic took the first two Triple Crown races but faded to third in the Belmont. As it turned out, jockey Chris Antley felt the colt's leg break in the final furlong and eased up the horse to prevent any further damage.
