The stooges are gypped into trading their restaurant for "Thunderbolt", a washed up race horse. When Curly feeds Thunderbolt some chili pepperinos, he runs like crazy towards the nearest water. The boys enter Thunderbolt in a big race. With jockey Larry feeding Thunderbolt the pepperinos, and Moe and Curly on a motorcycle leading him with a bucket of water, they win the race. Written by

This short was filmed in the Mid-1930s, at the height of horse racing in the United States. This was in the era when War Admiral and Seabiscuit were making bigger headlines then President Roosevelt. See more »
When Moe gets knocked down with the swinging doors, his apron is fully open in the back. He get knocked down a second time and it is still opened. But when he crawls under the door, the apron is wrapped around his entire back legs. It is also noticeable that he has tears in his eyes, suggesting that he was hurt for real. See more »

In this short the stooges are waiters that get tricked into buying a horse "Thunderbolt" they enter the horse into the race and the only way to get the horse to run fast is to feed it hot peppers. This was a good short but NOT their best.
