GOOF: "The horse could be OUT OF Secretariat..."
1 May 2011 | by (California) – See all my reviews

At the beginning of the episode, Angel is describing a scam involving a fake thoroughbred pedigree for a foal. Angel says "The horse could be out of Secretariat. That's not impossible, is it?" In fact, IT IS IMPOSSIBLE.

In thoroughbred terms, a foal is BY a sire (a stallion/male horse), and OUT OF a dam (a mare/female horse). So although a foal could be BY Secretariat, it is impossible for a foal to ever be OUT OF Secretariat.

But that "goof" aside, "The No-Cut Contract" is a very entertaining episode of The Rockford Files. Even the supporting cast in this episode is exceptional, with NFL great Dick Butkus; Wayne Tippit who plays Agent Dan Shore not only in this episode, but in two other notable episodes of Rockford files, including a touching tribute to Gretchen Corbett's Beth Davenport in "A Portrait of Elizabeth"; and Milt Kogan, who plays various characters in other Rockford episodes, including Angel's brother-in-law Aaron in "The Empty Frame."
