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 Curley is fishing for the mackerel, the meat cleaver is embedded in the chopping block. When he throws the mackerel back, the meat cleaver is lying on the chopping block, up against the can of peanuts. When he reels in the rubber boot, the meat clever is several inches from the can of peanuts. 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.
