Sabrina Becomes A Jockey
31 August 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Sabrina,Kelly and Kris are called in to find the murderer of a gambler killed while investigating the suspicious antics of a dull racehorse in Angels In The Stretch.

Les Ferrar, a man who makes his living betting the horses, notes something odd about the behavior of Perdition, a colt that has finished out of the money in every race. Exerciser Kevin Ryan and stablehand Gates catch him snooping around the stables; Gates hits him in the head with a shovel and kills him. They try to make it appear as though he was trampled by an ill-tempered stallion. Ferrar's daughter Valerie refuses to believe that his death was an accident, and hires the Angels to confirm her hunch. Valerie and Sabrina discover a note among Ferrar's personal effects in which he mentioned a white spot on a horse's lower left cheek. Sabrina gets a job as a horse exerciser and becomes friends with Ryan. Kelly strikes up a rapport with wealthy Carter Gillis. Sabrina rides Perdition and finds that he is extremely fast. However, everyone keeps insisting that the horse is a dud, and Kris and Bosley's attempt to buy him is ignored. Sabrina finds that Perdition has a white spot on his lower left cheek, although she had not noticed one earlier in the week. Charlie reports that Perdition has a twin; the Angels realize that someone has decided to pull a switch and run the faster horse in order to collect on the long odds. Kris and Bosley track down the real Perdition and bring him back to the track. They switch the horses back and hang around the windows to see who places unusually large bets on the colt.

I find it amazing that Sabrina becomes a jockey and an effective one at that despite having no experience nor training.Although we know that Charlie Townsend can fabricate credentials when her Angels go undercover such as licenses and papers,Sabrina being a jockey is somewhat questionable considering that big money is involved particularly since it happens to be at the racehorse where gambling is involved.Also,we get to see a Sabrina-centered episode wherein everything in the story happens around her while Kelly and Kris acted as supporting actresses.
