Originally scheduled as part of the "30 for 30" series, various issues postponed and ultimately moved if off of the schedule. I emailed the 30 for 30 folks last October and reported their reply in my "What Happened?" post that the documentary would be a future ESPN Films production, so what do you know.
The Steve Michaels documentary is scheduled for Tuesday, November 1 [Update: Changed to October 18] at 8 p.m! The film summary as listed at the ESPN site is as follows:
"In June of 1999 an unlikely colt named Charismatic, with down and out jockey Chris Antley aboard, headed down the stretch at the Belmont Stakes, just seconds away from becoming the first Triple Crown winner in nearly 21 years. Thoroughbred racing was desperate for this story of deliverance as track attendance was in steep decline. Into this void stepped Charismatic and Antley, both thought to be lost causes. Together, they became the biggest long shots in 59 years to win the Kentucky Derby, and then followed up with another underdog win at the Preakness, before tragedy struck."
