A jockey refuses to have any part on a horse race fixed by his employer, a wealthy man called Mr. Henderson. The jockey threatens to go to the police, so Mr. Henderson throws him in a stall with a horse and activates a device which makes the horse crazy. The jockey is stomped to death by the horse. The jockey's daughter Jenny arrives to find his body. The police investigate his death and conclude that it was an accident but Jenny has found evidence that makes her believe it was not, so she calls Jack Dalton and MacGyver to investigate what has happened. Written by Toni Tapola, Finland
