Hilariously inaccurate re horse racing matters.
21 May 2015 | by sphilcox-31086See all my reviews

First let me say I LOVE The Transporter TV series but this episode 11, Sixteen Hands was one of the worst TV viewing hours I have sat through. I work in the Australian horse racing industry and endorse everything Jerry Galloway says in his review, so I won't repeat but surely the director/writers could have checked with even the smallest horse trainer somewhere in America on how to handle the first few scenes in the horse barn and at least got it a lot more accurate than the hilariously impossible scenario produced. Frank and Jules are warned the horse is easily spooked, yet they yank open the "moving" van door in a manner that would have any thoroughbred flinching with fright. The girl trainer/rider takes the horse out into an open paddock with hay rolls and horse stands there like a concrete statue, no way a highly strung thoroughbred would stand like that in an unknown paddock. It is over 700 miles from Kentucky to Belmont Park, NY and there is no way any responsible owner/trainer would choose to truck the horse overnight on the night before the race.
