Elmont, N.Y. — She's no stranger to track trauma. She was instrumental in saving Charismatic's life in 1999 as the horse battled for the first Triple Crown since Affirmed in 1978. Dr. Celeste Kunz, DVM, New York Racing Association (NYRA) chief examining veterinarian, was the first to treat Charismatic when he pulled up abruptly in the stretch. The diagnosis of a displaced condylar fracture was made on the scene, and Charismatic was fitted with a compression boot. Kunz loaded him into the horse ambulance, medicated him and delivered him to the safety of his stall. Radiographs confirmed the diagnosis minutes later, and the compression boot successfully prevented further displacement prior to his surgery.
