The stooges are cheated into trading their restaurant for Thunderbolt, a washed up race horse, and enter the horse racing industry. When Curly feeds Thunderbolt some chili pepperinos, he runs like crazy towards the nearest water. The boys quickly discover Thunderbolt's sudden burst of speed and 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. Finally, the stooges enjoy the good life as Thunderbolt eats peanuts out of a large bowl in celebration. 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 »

The Stooges are running a junky restaurant where no client leaves happy or willing to tell their friends to visit. The boys overhear a couple con men talking about a horse and end up trading their restaurant for him. It turns out the horse is a total bust until Curly ends up feeding him some hot peppers. This here is certainly middle ground as far as the Stooges go but there are a few nice laugh scattered throughout the film. This certainly isn't a short I'd be going back to watch over and over again but there's enough here for at least one viewing. I found the first half with the restaurant to be the best as we get Curly doing several nice gags including the fishing bit as well as him constantly eating the salted peanuts. The customers in the film also get to deliver some nice lines as all of them leave the restaurant very unhappy about their "mud like" coffee and various other issues. The scene with the horse and feeding it hot peppers really didn't make me laugh even though it was mildly cute.
