The Bond Between a Horse and Its Jockey

This story is coming out of the blue. I thought it would be perfect for tonight. On ESPN there will be a documentary on Charismatic. A touching story. In the Belmont Stakes, Charismatic, about to win the Triple Crown, broke down coming down the stretch. Jockey Chris Antley slowed down Charismatic, before jumping off the horse and held up his leg. Saved his life. An amazing story of the bond between jockeys and horses. This is what makes horse racing one of the greatest sports.
