Storyline

Gabe Fenway, a sharecropper for local landlord Preston, plans to run his quarterhorse Sapphire in a local horse race. Mark also plans to race his horse, Blueboy, in the race. Preston, who wants to keep all of Fenway's crops, believes Mark's horse can beat Fenway's and tricks Fenway into betting his crop against Preston's $1000 that Mark will win. And to make sure that Mark wins, Preston has a plan to make sure that Fenway doesn't make it to the race. Written by frankfob2@yahoo.com

An unusual weak script
22 February 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Gabe Fenway is a sharecropper that is spending more time raising horses than worrying about the crops on the land. He needs the crops in order to pay off Jake Preston for the option of buying the land. And with a charity horse race coming up, Gabe is placing his hopes on winning the race and paying off the debt on the land so that it can finally be a landowner.

However, Gabe is pushed into a bet by Preston that says if Gabe does not win he loses the crops which will virtually lose the land. Everyone believes that Gabe is a natural to win the race until Mark enters his horse, Blueboy, and now Preston bets a load of money on Mark to win. Jake Preston is going to make sure, at any cost, that his bet comes through.

For whatever reason, this episode did not seem to hold the viewers attention like other shows from the series. The ending seemed almost too quick and highly unbelievable. This episode just did not have the same spark that makes the series so enjoyable.
