Valuable animals those thoroughbreds
11 March 2015 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

This Bonanza episode has all three brothers in competition during a horse race. Hoss could have and should have won this thing, but he lost a lot playing poker stable owner Percy Helton including a thoroughbred race horse. They're valuable animals those thoroughbreds, but they're bred for racing and that's all they're good for. Adam and Hoss try to raise enough money to buy him and get him fit for racing before Helton sells him. He's eating too much of Helton's hay and not earning his keep.

In the meantime Little Joe goes to work for William Demarest and Ellen Corby on loan to them from his dad to bust some broncos. Demarest has a fast horse himself and a gimmick that could just win the race for him which I will not reveal. Some heavy money is laid down on this race.

Very funny episode with some droll performances by the Cartwright brothers and the guest cast. I happen to have acquaintance with someone for about 45 years who is quite like Percy Helton in physical appearance and manner. So this is an interesting episode also because like Percy Helton in the show, this individual is quite cheap. I got a particular delight in seeing what happens to Helton in the end.
