♪♪ [BELL RINGING] [CROWD CHEERING] Track Announcer:
LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, THE HORSES ARE UP
FOR THE FIFTH FACE
AT SONORA DOWNS. THUNDERJAM GOES OFF
AS THE HEAVY FAVORITE, DESPITE A LACKLUSTER RECORD
FOR GARRIS RACING GROUP. [NEIGHING STRONGLY] THUNDERJAM RELUCTANT
TO GO IN. HANDLERS TRYING
TO CALM HIM DOWN. THUNDERJAM,
IN THE HOLE! COME ON, GIVE HIM
A HAND. GET IN BEHIND HIM THERE.
COME ON, HURRY IT UP. HEY, PETE.
WHAT’S THE DEAL
WITH THE 9 HORSE? THAT’S THUNDERJAM. YOU ASK ME,
JUST A PRICEY
WASTE OF FEED. HEY, CORRIE. IS THIS
MACHADO’S NEW JOCKEY? NAH, HE’S JUST
A SUB. WHY DON’T YOU TELL HIM
TO HIRE YOU? BELIEVE ME,
I’M WORKING ON HIM. OK, THUNDERJAM,
HURRY IT UP! COME ON, WE’VE GOT
A RACE TO RUN HERE. [NEIGHING EXCITEDLY] THUNDERJAM FINALLY IN, AND WE ARE READY
FOR THE START. AND THEY’RE OFF!
WITH THE GATE UP, KONA CAT
AND STOP AT NOTHING
VIE FOR THE FRONT. MANDALAY BRIDE
RIGHT THERE. PAIR OF HEARTS
A LENGTH OFF THE PACE. BABY’S BAD IN FRONT OF
WOOKIE’S COOKIE. THUNDERJAM IS… WHAT–STILL IN
THE GATE? NOT AGAIN! COME ON! COME ON! PASSING THE STANDS
FOR THE FIRST TIME, BOLD VILLAIN TRAILS
THE LEADER BY
3 LENGTHS. KONA CAT NOW LEADS
BY A HEAD. MANDALAY BRIDE
HANGS TIGHT WITH JOCKEY
JERRY KITCHEL ABOARD. PAIR OF HEARTS
CHALLENGING. THE REST OF THE PACK
RIGHT THERE WITH THUNDERJAM IN
ANOTHER ZIP CODE. INTO THE FIRST TURN,
KONA CAT STILL
CONTROLLING THE PACE. PAIR OF HEARTS CONTENT
WITH SECOND
AT THIS POINT. STOP AT NOTHING
FALLING OFF A BIT. WOOKIE’S COOKIE
AND BABY’S BAD IN GOOD POSITION
IN THE SECOND GROUP. AN HONEST PACE IN
THE FIFTH RACE, WITH KONA CAT LEADING,
BY THE WAY. STOP AT NOTHING
LAYING BACK WITH
WOOKIE’S COOKIE. YOU COULD STICK
A FORK IN THUNDERJAM.
HE’S DONE. PAIR OF HEARTS
AND MANDALAY BRIDE… ONE, 2, AND 3 AS THEY
HEAD INTO THE TURN. WOOKIE’S COOKIE
MOUNTING A CHALLENGE, BUT IT COULD BE
TOO MUCH FOR HIM
TO MAKE UP FOR. PAIR OF HEARTS
MAKING A BOLD MOVE ON THE OUTSIDE COMING
OUT OF THE TURN. MANDALAY BRIDE
FINDS NO ROOM
BETWEEN HORSES. MANDALAY BRIDE
GETTING TRAPPED. KONA CAT LOCKED UP WITH
PAIR OF HEARTS. LOOK OUT! MANDALAY BRIDE
GOES DOWN. JOCKEYS DO THEIR BEST
TO AVOID A PILE-UP. ALL THE HORSES
ARE THROUGH. MANDALAY BRIDE IS UP,
AND SO IS THE RIDER. LET’S HOPE
THEY’RE OK. OH, WHAT THE… 18 MINUTES
TO THE NEXT POST, TODAY’S FEATURED RACE,
A HANDICAP… Corrie:
WOOKIE’S COOKIE
DID PRETTY GOOD FOR A FIRST RACE,
HUH, MR. MACHADO? I THOUGHT SHE’D SHOW
A LITTLE MORE THAN THAT. MAYBE SHE NEEDS
A BETTER JOCKEY. OH, HERE WE GO! COME ON,
MR. MACHADO,
I’M READY. YOU KNOW I AM.
LET ME BE
YOUR JOCKEY. I’M NOT PUTTING YOU
ON A RACEHORSE.
IT’S TOO DANGEROUS. I’VE SHOVELED
HORSE POOP FOR YOU FOR THE PAST 2
YEARS. TRUST ME, DANGEROUS IS
A BIG STEP UP. WITH A LITTLE REST,
SHE’LL BE FINE. YEAH. WILL SHE
RACE AGAIN? NO, BUT MAYBE
A RIDING PONY– I DON’T DO RIDING
PONIES. I DO
RACE HORSES. JUST GET ME
THE INJURY
CERTIFICATE. TELL YOU WHAT.
WHY DON’T YOU
ASK YOUR MOTHER AND SEE WHAT
SHE SAYS. YOU KNOW WHAT
SHE’LL SAY! LUCY, WHAT WAS
THAT ALL ABOUT? GARRIS WANTS
TO PUT HER DOWN. NOW LET ME GUESS–
INSURANCE MONEY. AN ANIMAL LIKE THIS…
WHAT A WASTE. SHE IS A BEAUTY. YOU CAN TELL
MR. GARRIS I’M NOT
GETTING ON THAT PLUG
THUNDERJAM
AGAIN. I WAS
A LAUGHING-STOCK
OUT THERE! THUNDERJAM,
YOU’RE PATHETIC! Handler: WAIT A SECOND!
YOU CAN’T JUST WALK OUT ON MR. GARRIS
LIKE THAT! I’LL BE
RIGHT BACK. OH, THUNDERJAM. SO YOU HAD
A BAD START. YOU FINISHED GREAT. RIGHT THERE
AT THE TURN, WHEN YOU FLEW POST
THE QUARTER POLE. IT WAS LIKE… IT WAS LIKE
LISTENING TO
THE WIND. I THINK WHAT YOU MIGHT
HAVE HEARD WAS WHEEZING. NOW, MAYBE
YOU MISSED IT, BUT THIS, UH, THIS HORSE
CAME IN DEAD LAST. CORRECTION,
NEXT TO DEAD LAST. YOU’RE ABSOLUTELY RIGHT.
MY APOLOGIES. YEAH, YOU DID BEAT THE HORSE
THAT FELL DOWN. OK, SO HE’S NOT
SECRETARIAT, BUT LOOK HOW STRONG
HE IS. YEAH! A HORSE NEEDS MORE
THAN STRENGTH, CORRIE. HE’S GOTTA HAVE HEART. I’LL BET
THERE’S A RACEHORSE
IN THERE SOMEWHERE. [NEIGHING EXCITEDLY] SO WHAT’S GOING
TO HAPPEN TO HER? OH, I WOULDN’T WORRY
ABOUT THAT. WE GOT ENOUGH PROBLEMS
IN OUR OWN BARN. I’M NOT A BABY,
MR. MACHADO. ALL RIGHT. GARRIS IS GONNA
HAVE HER DESTROYED. FOR WHAT?! FOR WHAT ELSE? MONEY. INSURANCE WON’T
PAY FOR A HORSE
THAT’S STILL STANDING. SO TOMORROW MORNING,
A TRUCK’LL COME BY, PICK HER UP,
TAKE HER AWAY… AND CUT HER UP
FOR HORSE MEAT. THERE’S GOTTA BE
SOMETHING
WE CAN DO. WHOA, WHOA, WHOA,
WHOA, CORRIE… IT’S NOT OUR HORSE. MAYBE…MAYBE
IT’LL GROW WINGS
AND FLY AWAY. YEAH, LIKE THAT’LL
HAPPEN. WELL, WE CAN
HOPE. ALL RIGHT. YOU
GO ON HOME NOW,
ALL RIGHT? YOUR MOTHER
PROBABLY HAS
DINNER WAITING. HERE YOU GO. I’LL PUT
WOOKIE’S COOKIE
BACK IN OUR BARN. THANKS,
MR. MACHADO. ALL RIGHT. Corrie:
HEY, GIRL. HEY. Boy: GO! GO! GO, GO, GO,
GO, GO, GO! HURRY UP!
YAH, YAH, GO! GABBY, TELL ME THAT IS NOT
MY UNDERWEAR ON YOUR HEAD. I’M PLAYING JOCKEY.
I NEEDED A HELMET. YOU NEED
A ROLE MODEL. BETTING WITH TOOTHPICKS,
ABUELITA?¡SALIÓ, SALIÓ!ONLY THE FIFTH RACE,
AND ALREADY I’M DOWN
2,000. THAT’S A LOT OF
TOOTHPICKS. WASH UP,
CORRITA. DINNER’S
ALMOST READY. HEY! THAT’S
MY HAT! YOU COME–I’M GONNA
TELL MOM! I WON’T LET YOU
DOWN, DAD. HOW WAS WORK TODAY,
CORRITA? SAME OLD THING. FEED THE HORSES,
WORK THE HORSES,
WATCH ‘EM LOSE. HECTOR IS
A GOOD MAN. GOD WILL
REWARD HIM. HIS LUCK
WILL CHANGE. I’M A GOOD WOMAN.
MY LUCK STINKS. THAT’S BECAUSE
GOD REWARDED YOU WITH
GRANDCHILDREN. I WOULD TRADE THEM
FOR A WINNING HORSE. SHE’S TEASING
YOU, GABBY. I KNOW. HEY, PUT A LID
ON THE DISPOSAL. YOU CAN’T TELL ME
WHAT TO DO. I’M THE MAN OF
THE FAMILY. SAYS THE BOY WHO WEARS
SATIN PANTIES ON HIS HEAD. THE COTTON ONES
PULL MY HAIR. MOM, I’VE BEEN THINKING
ABOUT GETTING A NEW JOB. AND QUIT WORKING FOR
MR. MACHADO? I’D STILL BE
WORKING FOR HIM. HE NEEDS A NEW JOCKEY. I WON’T ALLOW IT. BUT, MOM, I DON’T
WANT TO BE AN EXERCISE RIDER
FOR THE REST OF MY LIFE. WELL, THEN YOU CAN
FORGET ABOUT
THE HORSES. YOU’RE A SMART GIRL,
CORRIE. YOU CAN BE
A DOCTOR…TEACHER. I DON’T WANT TO BE
THOSE THINGS. I WANT TO BE
A JOCKEY. WE HAVE BEEN
THROUGH THIS A THOUSAND TIMES,
CORRITA. I SAID NO,
AND THAT IS FINAL. I CAN BE ANYTHING
I WANNA BE. DAD TOLD ME SO. AND LOOK WHAT BEING
A JOCKEY GOT HIM. A NICE HEADSTONE. IS THAT
WHAT YOU WANT? TO BREAK
MY HEART AGAIN? GABBY,
GO WITH HER. OK. SHE REMINDS ME OF
HER FATHER. DON’T! SHE IS MY CHILD, AND I AM TRYING
TO PROTECT HER. FOR HOW LONG? WHAT IF SHE’S GOT
THE GIFT? NO GIFT… TAKES AWAY
A HUSBAND
AND A FATHER. THERE IS
NO GIFT! [NEIGHS] Corrie: IT’S OK. I WON’T LET THEM
HURT YOU.
I PROMISE. COME ON. [NEIGHS LOUDLY] THUNDERJAM. SHH! THIS IS FOR
YOUR OWN GOOD. GO ON.
GET OUT OF HERE. GO! [NEIGHING] Thunderjam: WOW!
GOOD FOR HER.
THAT WAS TERRIFIC. [HORSES WHISPERING] [HORSES STOP WHISPERING] HELLO?
IS ANYBODY THERE? [OWL HOOTING] HELLO? THAT WAS A VERY BRAVE
THING YOU DID. WHO SAID THAT? I DID. ME! T.J.! T.J.? THAT’S RIGHT.
IT’S ME! THAT’S FUNNY! I THOUGHT
I JUST HEARD YOU– YOU DID. NO, THIS IS TOO WEIRD–
I–OH, MAN… I’VE GOTTA WEAR A MASK
IN HERE FROM NOW ON, THE FUMES ARE REALLY
GETTING TO MY HEAD. HUMANS! LOOK, PAL,
I DROVE ALL NIGHT TO PICK UP A HORSE.
NOW WHERE IS IT? I DON’T KNOW
WHAT HAPPENED. HE WAS RIGHT HERE
YESTERDAY. YOU BETTER FIND OUT, ‘CAUSE I DON’T WANT
TO BE THE ONE TO TELL MR. GARRIS
YOUCAN’T FIND HIS HORSE. YOU WOULDN’T
KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT
A MISSING HORSE,
WOULD YOU? BUT, MR. MACHADO,
YOU SAID THAT MR. GARRIS WAS JUST GONNA
GET RID OF– I DIDN’T THINK SO. MY GUESS IS,
HE JUST GREW WINGS
AND FLEW AWAY. BUT OUR HORSES
ARE STILL HERE, AND, UH, THEY NEED
A LITTLE ATTENTION. ♪ ALL AROUND THE WORLD ♪ ♪ WE NEED SOMEONE
TO LOOK UP TO ♪ ♪ ALL AROUND THE WORLD
WE NEED SOMEBODY WHO CARES ♪ ♪ ALL AROUND THE WORLD ♪ ♪ WE NEED SOMEONE
WHO’S SPECIAL ♪ ♪ THAT’S ALL WE NEED
THAT’S WHAT WE NEED… ♪ HIYA, KID.
HOW’S THIS OLD BOY
DOING, HUH? THIS OLD BOY
IS A FILLY,
MR. FLANNIGAN, AND SHE’S
DOING JUST FINE. YOU’VE GOT
YOUR OLD MAN’S
HEAD FOR HORSES. HEY, HECTOR
AROUND?
TACK ROOM. HECTOR,
I’M ABOUT TO MAKE YOU
A VERY HAPPY MAN. BY LEAVING? I CAN SEE
YOU’RE BUSY, SO I WILL CUT
RIGHT TO THE CHASE. I HAVE SIGNED
A NEW JOCKEY, AND I’M GOING
TO GIVE YOU
FIRST CRACK. PASS. B. MOODY. HE’S GOT
THE MITTS OF SHOEMAKER. BEST TOUCH
WITH THE PONIES I HAVE EVER SEEN.
TAKE A LOOK. WOULD YOU AT LEAST
TAKE A LOOK? GREAT MOVES, HUH? I DON’T NEED
A CALF ROPER.
TRY THE RODEO. COME ON, GIVE THE KID
A SHOT. LET HIM DO
A WORKOUT, ANYTHING. JUST SEE
WHAT HE CAN DO. I DON’T NEED
A JOCKEY, HOMER. YOU DON’T NEED ONE,
OR YOU CAN’T AFFORD ONE? WHAT’S THAT
SUPPOSED
TO MEAN? IT’S NOT LIKE
IT’S A SECRET. JOCKEYS WON’T RIDE
FOR YOU. OWNERS AREN’T
BRINGING YOU HORSES. NOBODY WANTS
TO BE AROUND A LOSER. IT’S THEIR WORDS,
NOT MINE. EVERY TRAINER
HAS A SLUMP. IT’S BEEN
2 YEARS, HECTOR. YOU DON’T SADDLE
A WINNER SOON, YOU’RE GONNA
LOSE THE BARN. ANY EXPERIENCE? ARE YOU KIDDING? THIS KID WAS BORN
WITH HIS BUTT IN A SADDLE, WHICH DIDN’T MAKE
HIS MOTHER VERY HAPPY. YEAH, LOTS OF EXPERIENCE,
MOSTLY FLORIDA. GULFSTREAM?
HIALEAH? RINGLING BROTHERS.
A CIRCUS
RIDER. HEY, A VERY GOOD
CIRCUS RIDER. WHY DO I
LISTEN TO YOU? SO DO WE
HAVE A DEAL? HERE’S
YOUR DEAL. YOU’RE NOT
OUT OF HERE
IN 2 SECONDS, YOU’LL NEVER
HAVE WORMS
AGAIN. YEAH. GET BACK TO ME
ON THE KID,
WILL YOU, HECTOR? Track Announcer:
AND THEY’RE AWAY
IN THE SECOND RACE. IT’S AN EVEN BREAK.
THEY’RE ALL BUNCHED UP COMING DOWN THE STRAIGHT. YOU KNOW, I LIKE
THAT JUICY FRUITY HORSE. THAT’S A SASSY NAME. YOU’RE THROWING AWAY
GOOD TOOTHPICKS.
HE’S WORN OUT. HE TOLD YOU THIS? WELL, NO,
BUT LOOK AT HIM. LET ME KNOW
WHENHESAYS
HE’S WORN OUT. UNTIL THEN,
200 TOOTHPICKS
ON JUICY FRUITY. [NEIGHING]ABUELITA?
MM-HMM? YOU DON’T THINK
THEYREALLYTALK,
DO YOU? THE HORSES? OF COURSE
THEY DO. I MEAN…
LIKE, TO US. UH-HUH,
THAT, TOO. IN ENGLISH. CORRIE,
ARE YOU TRYING TO TELL ME
SOMETHING? I DON’T KNOW. SOMETHING HAPPENED
THE OTHER NIGHT. THIS IS NUTS.
HORSES DO NOT TALK. THEY CALL IT
LA CONFIANZA DE CABALLOS.THE CONFIDENCE OF
HORSES? YES. FOR MANY GENERATIONS,
PEOPLE IN OUR FAMILY HAVE HAD A SPECIAL BOND
WITH THECABALLO.SO…THEY TALK
TO YOU? IF THEY DID,
I WOULDN’T LOSE
SO MANY TOOTHPICKS. THECABALLO
TELLS HIS SECRETS ONLY TO THOSE WHO
PROVE THEMSELVES WORTHY, WHOSE HEARTS
ARE PURE AND TRUE. LIKE YOUR PAPA. HE HAD THE GIFT. [CALL TO POST] I’VE GOTTA GO
TO WORK.
SEE YA LATER. OK, WE GOTTA
THINK POSITIVE. OK, I THINK I CAN,
I THINK I CAN. OH, YEAH,
OH, YEAH. HAVE NO FEAR
‘CAUSE HOLLYWOOD
IS HERE. Filly:
SPARE ME. THAT’S RIGHT,
BABY. HOLLYWOOD’S
IN THE HOUSE. HORSE ONE:
I THOUGHT I SMELLED
SOMETHING FOUL. HEY, BABY,
WHAT’S YOUR NAME? Filly:
OH, PLEASE! DON’T HATE ME
‘CAUSE I’M BEAUTIFUL. Horse 2:
I SEE YOU HAVEN’T
LOST YOUR TOUCH WITH THE LADIES,
HOLLYWOOD. HA-HA-HA!
THAT’S SO FUNNY. I’M SURPRISED
YOU EVEN RECOGNIZE
MY FACE, SINCE YOU’RE USUALLY
CHASING MY BUTT. Filly: HA! WELL,
WHO COULD TELL
THE DIFFERENCE? HURRY UP. LET’S GO,
LET’S GO, LET’S GO! OK, NOW LET’S RELAX.
I THINK I CAN,
I THINK I CAN, I THINK I… I THINK I FEEL MY HEART
COMING OUT OF MY MOUTH! OH, I THINK I CAN,
I THINK I CAN! HOW COME I ALWAYS GET
A FAT JOCKEY? HEY, PETE,
DID YOU
HEAR THAT? HEAR WHAT? “I THINK I CAN,
I THINK I CAN,
I THINK I CAN.” I THINK YOU’RE
HEARING THINGS, CORRIE. YOU HAVE
NO IDEA. I THINK I CAN,
I THINK I CAN. I’M STILL THINKING,
I’M STILL THINKING,
I’M STILL CAN-ING. EVERY HORSE RACE
NEEDS A LOSER. THAT’S WHY
WE INVITED YOU. MR. GARRIS. YOU HAVE
A HORSE ENTERED, OR ARE YOU JUST OUT
LOOKING FOR RUNAWAYS? SO YOU KNOW
ABOUT THAT. WHY AM I
NOT SURPRISED? CAN’T SAY
I WAS SORRY. I WAS BY
YOUR BARN TODAY. A LOT OF EMPTY
SPACE. YOU KNOW,
I COULD USE
THE STALLS FOR SOME
REAL HORSES. MY BARN’S NOT
FOR SALE. YET. YOU KNOW,
I REMEMBER A MACHADO
FROM THE OLD DAYS. HE HAD THIS DREAM
OF TRAINING
A CHAMPION. KILLER INSTINCT.
WHATEVER HAPPENED
TO THAT GUY? YOU KNOW
WHAT HAPPENED. LONG TIME AGO,
HECTOR. ACCIDENTS ARE
PART OF RACING. DO YOURSELF
A FAVOR…
GET OVER IT. OH, AFTER THE RACE,
COME ON DOWN TO
THE WINNER’S CIRCLE. I’LL SHOW
YOU AROUND. I MEAN, SINCE YOU
DON’T GET DOWN
THERE…EVER. Track Announcer:
THE FIELD IS
TAKING SHAPE HERE AS HOLLYWOOD SHUFFLE
MOVES INTO POSITION
NUMBER 8. HEY, HEY,
WATCH THE TAIL,
WATCH THE TAIL! OH, BOY, OH, BOY,
OH, BOY! I GOT
THAT FEELING. EXCUSE ME, EXCUSE ME,
I GOT THAT FEELING! I NEED TO DO
MY BUSINESS! THEY’RE IN! YOU NEED A BUCKET,
THUNDERBUCKET? EXCUSE ME, I NEED
A POTTY BREAK. A LITTLE LATE
FOR THAT, ISN’T IT,
BLUEBLOOD? I CAN’T HELP IT!
I GOTTA GO! LATER,
THUNDERBUCKET! AND THEY’RE OFF! TYRO COMES
WALKING OUT OF
THE GATE, BUT HOLLYWOOD SHUFFLE
COMES OUT IN STRIDE. HE’S OUT TO TAKE
THE EARLY LEAD. WHERE IS HE,
McCAFFERY?! I DON’T KNOW!
MAYBE HE’S BURIED
IN THE PACK. THUNDERJAM’S REALLY WIDE,
HE’S THE LONGSHOT–
STILL AT THE GATE. TAIL BOB HUGS THE RAIL,
MAKING UP GROUND AS THEY MOVE AROUND
THE FIRST TURN. HOLLYWOOD SHUFFLE
SETTING A FURIOUS PACE AS THEY ENTER
THE BACK STRETCH. WHAT ARE
YOU DOING?! [SIGHING]
OH, YEAH! GET MOVING!
COME ON! RUN! RUN,
YOU IDIOT! “EVERY HORSE RACE
NEEDS A LOSER.”
WELL… AT LEAST MY HORSE
LEFT THE GATE. HEY, WHAT DO THEY
WANT FROM ME? NATURE CALLED,
I OPENED THE DOOR. Garris: THAT’S IT,
I’M DUMPING
THUNDERJAM! McCaffery: YOU CAN’T
JUST DUMP A HORSE ‘CAUSE HE’S
NO GOOD, SIR. INSURANCE DOESN’T
WORK THAT WAY. FINE, I’LL BREAK
HIS LEG FIRST, THEN I’LL HAVE
A REASON
TO DUMP HIM. MR. GARRIS!
WHAT?! I WAS JUST GONNA SAY…
WATCH YOUR STEP, SIR. [GRUNTING
IN DISGUST] I WANT THAT LOSER
OUT OF MY LIFE. I DON’T CARE IF YOU
SHOOT HIM, GRIND HIM
INTO DOG FOOD, OR TRADE HIM FOR
A BAG OF PEANUTS. JUST GET RID OF HIM. I’LL
TAKE HIM. HUH? YOU JUST SAID
YOU’D TRADE HIM FOR
A BAG OF PEANUTS. I’LL TAKE HIM. YOU JUST
BOUGHT YOURSELF
A RACEHORSE, KID. OH, AND BY THE WAY,
YOU OVERPAID. [RASPBERRY] MR. GARRIS!
MR. GARRIS! HEY! Groom: I CAN’T
BELIEVE GARRIS
JUST DID THAT. SO HE DUMPS
A LOSER HORSE.
BIG DEAL. DON’T LISTEN
TO THEM. YOU’RE NOT A LOSER.
YOU’RE MINE NOW. [WHIRRING] MAMA! MAMA! COME AND SEE! GABBY, SLOW DOWN. WHAT’S WRONG? CORRIE BOUGHT A HORSE! [DOOR SQUEAKS] WELL, HERE WE ARE. THIS IS YOUR NEW HOME. THIS IS GONNA BE GREAT. YOU AND ME–WE’LL BE LIKE
THE DREAM TEAM OF RACING. PERFECT HORSE, PERFECT JOCKEY. WE’LL OWN
THE WINNERS CIRCLE. OH, AND I’LL BUY MY MOM
THE HOUSE SHE’S ALWAYS WANTED, AND YOU’RE GONNA LOVE
MR. MACHADO. HE’S THE GREATEST
TRAINER. GIVE IT BACK. WHAT? NO, MOM… GIVE IT BACK RIGHT NOW. I CAN’T. IF I DO, MR. GARRIS IS JUST GONNA
GET RID OF HIM. I’M SORRY, CORRITA. I CAN BARELY TAKE CARE OF
OUR FAMILY. I CANNOT TAKE CARE
OF A HORSE. YOU WON’T HAVE TO. I WILL.
I PROMISE. WHERE ARE YOU GOING TO
KEEP THIS HORSE? WELL, HE COULD
STAY HERE. I MEAN IF IT’S OK
WITH YOU. IT’S NOT LIKE
I DON’T HAVE THE ROOM. THE ANSWER
IS STILL NO. YOU CAN’T EVEN
AFFORD TO BUY FEED. HE CAN PAY
HIS OWN WAY, MOM. RIGHT, MR. MACHADO? RIGHT? YEAH. YEAH. I SUPPOSE HE COULD, UH, PAY FOR HIS FEED
WITH HIS OWN WINNINGS. MR. MACHADO’S
A GREAT TRAINER, MOM. HE’LL TURN HIM INTO
A WINNER IN NO TIME. PLEASE! WHAT IF HE NEVER WINS? WELL… HE’D BE RIGHT AT HOME
IN THIS BARN. FOR NOW… OK. YES! THANKS, MOM. [HORSE SNORTS] CORRIE ORTIZ,
IN THE PINK AND YELLOW SILKS, CHALLENGES FOR THE LEAD. DOWN THE STRETCH,
IT’S THUNDERJAM AND RED NOSE. RED NOSE AND THUNDERJAM! PUSHING AT THE WIRE!
WHAT’S THAT AHEAD? OH, MY!
IT’S A LOW TREE BRANCH! AND THUNDERJAM
WINS BY A NOSE IN THE RUNNING
OF THE ROSES! COME ON.
IT’S TIME FOR BED. OHH! GABBY… BEDTIME. GO ON. NOW… DON’T THINK FOR A SECOND
THAT HAVING A HORSE… MAKES YOU A JOCKEY. IF I EVER CATCH YOU
RIDING HIM OR ANY OTHER HORSE
IN A RACE… I’LL GIVE HIM AWAY
MYSELF. DO YOU UNDERSTAND? YES, MOM. GO TO SLEEP. YOU, TOOMI’JO.GOOD NIGHT. GOOD NIGHT. [DOOR CLOSES] ARE WE IN TROUBLE? NO. GO TO SLEEP. GOOD NIGHT, CORRIE. I LOVE YOU. I LOVE YOU, TOO, GABBY. [SNORTS] MORNING, THUNDERJAM. [YAWNS] MORNIN’. MORNING? [SNORTS]
GOOD MORNIN’. BOO! [SNORTS] HA HA HA HA! I’M SORRY.
DID I SCARE YOU? NO. NO, NO, NO. YES, YES, YES. THIS IS NOT HAPPENING. I AMNOT
TALKING TO A HORSE. SO FORGET I’M A HORSE. JUST THINK OF ME
AS A HAIRY GUY
WITH A BIG NOSE. [SNORTS] MY GRANDMOTHER
TOLD ME ABOUT THIS. ABOUT WHAT? THE CONFIDENCE OF HORSES. OH, YEAH.
THAT GIFT THING. I’M THUNDERJAM, BUT YOU CAN
CALL ME T.J. YEAH. AND YOU CAN CALL ME INSANE! I–I GOTTA GET YOU READY
FOR YOUR WORKOUT. WHOA, WHOA, WHOA!
WAIT A MINUTE,
MISS INSANE. A WORKOUT FOR WHAT? OH, I DON’T KNOW. YOU’RE A RACEHORSE. HOW ABOUT FOR A RACE? I SHOULD LET YOU IN
ON A LITTLE SECRET. I STINK. OK. NOW I’LL LETYOUIN
ON A LITTLE SECRET. STARTING TODAY, YOU’RE GONNA TRY. AND IF YOU DON’T,
I’LL–I– I’M TALKING TO A HORSE! THIS IS TOTALLY CRAZY! GOOD MORNING, CORRIE. MR. MACHADO!
I MEAN– [SNORTS]
GOOD MORNING. I’M JUST IN HERE… NOT TALKING TO A HORSE… OR ANYBODY. JUST TO ME, OF COURSE. [SNORTS] OK. VERY SMOOTH. WOULD YOU SHUT UP?
HE’LL HEAR YOU. RELAX. YOU’RE THE ONLY ONE
THAT CAN HEAR ME. I’LL PROVE IT. HEY, YOU! GOAT-FACE! GOAT-FACE?
GOAT-FACE? NO! NO, NO. I DON’T THINK
YOU’RE A GOAT-FACE. HA HA HA HA! HE DOES. HA HA! CORRIE, YOU OK? I’M REALLY NOT SURE YET. UH-HUH. WELL, WHILE
YOU’RE THINKING ABOUT IT, WHY DON’T YOU GET
THE REST OF THE HORSES FED? WELL, I WAS JUST
GETTING…T.J.– I MEAN THUNDERJAM–
READY FOR HIS WORKOUT. WELL, THERE WON’T BE
ANY POINT IN THAT. HE’S NOT GONNA BE DOING
ANY RACING. OOH!
I LIKE THIS GUY. SHUT UP! EXCUSE ME? NO–NOT YOU. WHAT DO YOU MEAN,
HE WON’T BE DOING
ANY RACING? WELL, YOU SAW
THE SAME STARTS
THAT I DID. HE NEVER LEFT THE GATE. HE’S A PLUG, CORRIE,
NOT A RACEHORSE. [SNORTS]
“PLUG’S” A LITTLE STRONG. BUT…YESTERDAY YOU SAID HE’D PAY HIS WAY
FROM HIS WINNINGS. CORRIE, I SAID THAT ‘CAUSE I WANTED YOU
TO KEEP HIM. I’M–I’M SORRY. CAN I AT LEAST
GIVE HIM A WORKOUT? WELL, YOU’RE HIS
EXERCISE RIDER. JUST…BE CAREFUL. [MOCKING]
JUST BE CAREFUL. I HEARD THAT. SO WHAT’S A HORSE
GOTTA DO AROUND HERE TO GET SOME CHOW? COME ON, T.J.,
STEP ON THE GAS! EASY ON THE RIBS!
I’M REALLY TICKLISH. CATCH UP TO ‘EM! I’M NOT REALLY SLOW. IT’S JUST THAT
THEY’RE TOO FAST. WHAT IS THAT? HOLD IT!
WHAT IS THAT? WHOA! T.J.– OOH, THAT’S UGLY.
LET ME GET A GOOD LOOK. OOH, THAT’S REALLY UGLY. [NEIGHING] WHOA, T.J.! WHOA!
GET DOWN! LET’S GET OUTTA HERE! IT’S GODZILLA! STOP, T.J.! [DOG BARKING] CORRIE! [BARKING] AY-YI-YI-YI-YI. CORRIE! HO! WHOA! WHOA, T.J. HO, HO, HO, HO!
WHOA! HO, HO. HA HA HA HA! ARE YOU OK? I’M FINE! I’M FINE! OK, YOU WERE RIGHT. MAYBE HE IS
A LITTLE CRAZY, BUT YOU GOTTA ADMIT,
HE CAN RUN. OH, NO, NO.
HE WASN’T RUNNING.
HE WAS FLYING. HE TURNED AN EIGHTH
IN 10:5. HA HA HA HA! I THINK WE GOT OURSELVES
A RACEHORSE. YES! YES. OF COURSE,
WE GOTTA GET A DOG
TO CHASE HIM, BUT… SO WHEN DO WE START? SOON AS I CAN FIND
A JOCKEY. ME, ME!
YOU’RE LOOKING AT HER. CORRIE, YOU KNOW BETTER
THAN THAT. WELL, IF NOT ME,
THEN WHO? ARE YOU KIDDING ME? HE’S NOT A JOCKEY,
HE’S A CIRCUS CLOWN. YEAH. YEAH. A VERY GOOD CIRCUS CLOWN. HEY! GET BACK
IN THE SADDLE! OH–YEAH,
THAT’S MUCH BETTER. THERE IS A JOCKEY
IN THERE SOMEWHERE. HE JUST NEEDS
A LITTLE HELP. YEAH.
FROM A PSYCHIATRIST. OH, MY BACK. DUDE, THIS IS
ONE AWESOME MULE. MULE?! HELLO.
I’M NOT A DUDE. AND I’M NOT A MULE. DON’T TAKE IT PERSONAL.
SHE’S JUST A LITTLE
JEALOUS. MR. MOODY,
WELCOME ABOARD. I–I GOT THE GIG? OH, NO WAY! OH, DUDE! I WON’T
LET YOU GUYS DOWN, I SWEAR! TOUCH ME AND DIE. OK? OH, MAN,
THIS IS SO AWESOME! DUDE, DUDE,
I’M YOUR NEW JOCKEY. WHAT ARE YOU DOING? EWW! HE KISSED ME! YECCHH! UUCCH! YECCHH!
HE KISSED ME! WELL, THERE’S CERTAINLY
NOTHING WRONG
WITH HIS BLOODLINE. TAKE A LOOK AT THIS.
T.J.’s FATHER WON
A KENTUCKY DERBY. SO WHAT’S HIS PROBLEM? WELL, LOOKING AT HIS CHART, I’D SAY GARRIS
RAN HIM WAY TOO OFTEN AND IN ALL
THE WRONG RACES. HE TURNED A GOOD HORSE
INTO A HEAD CASE. NO WAY. MY DAD SAID
I WAS A HEAD CASE. HA HA. WHAT A SHOCK. WHAT? NOW, LISTEN. I THINK WE CAN GET T.J.
TURNED AROUND, GET HIM BACK TO FORM. MAYBE EVEN MAKE HIM
A CHAMPION LIKE HIS FATHER. BUT IT’S GONNA TAKE
A LOT OF WORK. FROM EVERYONE. OH, DUDE,
I’M ALL OVER IT. CORRIE, WE’RE GONNA
NEED YOUR HELP. CORRIE… I KNOW
THIS IS HARD FOR YOU, AND I WOULDN’T BLAME YOU IF YOU STOPPED
RIGHT HERE AND NOW. IT’S YOUR HORSE,
AND IT’S YOUR CALL. I UNDERSTAND. WE’D HAVE TO BUILD
HIS CONFIDENCE BACK. ABSOLUTELY. FROM THE GROUND UP. THEN LET’S GET TO WORK. LET’S GO. NOW, T.J. COULD HAVE
ALL THE SPEED IN THE WORLD, BUT IT WON’T MATTER
IF HE NEVER LEAVES THE GATE. T.J.: WAIT A MINUTE.
WHERE ARE WE GOING?
THOSE LOOK LIKE GATES. THOSEAREGATES!
WHAT, ARE YOU CRAZY? YOU KNOW I HATE GATES, AND I HATE
THE SOUND OF METAL! NO, NO! I’M NOT GOING
OVER THERE! I DON’T CARE
WHAT YOU DO.
I DON’T LIKE GATES! HOW MANY TIMES
DO I HAVE TO TELL YOU? QUIT YANKING! OH! I GOT A TENDER TOOTH
IN THE BACK! WATCH THE BIT!
WATCH THE BIT! I TOLD YOU,
I DON’T LIKE THIS! OH. SORRY.
DID I HURT YOU? NICE JOB, CORRIE.
NOW, HANG ON. MOODY. MOODY, I NEED YOU
TO CONCENTRATE AND ANTICIPATE THE START. YOU READY? GO FOR IT! GO! NOPE. I’M NOT MOVIN’.
I’M NOT GOIN’ ANYWHERE. [SIGHS] WE GOT ENGINE FAILURE,
DUDE. LET’S TRY IT AGAIN. [SNORTS]
I’M GONNA STAND RIGHT HERE. MM-HMM. I’M NOT GOING ANYWHERE. I’M STILL NOT MOVING. SEE? I’M NOT GOIN’ ANYWHERE. BUT HE IS. WHOA-A-A-A! ALWAYS WEAR A SEATBELT. [WHINNIES] WHOA… [SIGHS] THIS IS GONNA
TAKE A WHILE. MM-HMM. HECTOR. WHAT CAN I DO FOR YOU? WELL, CAN YOU GET
A THICKHEADED HORSE
OUT OF A GATE? NO. THAT’S YOUR JOB. I SERVE COFFEE. OH, WELL,
I COULD USE SOME. IT WAS VERY GOOD OF YOU TO KEEP THE HORSE
IN YOUR BARN. WELL, I’M A TRAINER,
AND I NEED HORSES. IT’S MORE THAN THAT.
YOU KNOW IT. YOU’RE SO GOOD
TO CORRIE. AND TO OUR FAMILY. AH… NO, NO. PLEASE LET ME DO THIS. YOU SPEND YOUR MONEY
SOMEPLACE ELSE. OH, YOU MEAN
THERE’S SOMETHING
OTHER THAN WORK? IF YOU EVER STOP WORKING
LONG ENOUGH… YOU MIGHT MEET SOMEBODY
WHO INTERESTS YOU. WELL,

A WOMAN. FROM THE FIRST TIME
I LAID EYES ON HER, IT WAS AS IF… BEAUTY
HAD A NEW STANDARD. HUH. SHE SOUNDS… WONDERFUL. WONDERFUL AND MORE. SO, WHAT’S HAPPENING WITH YOU AND THIS… WONDERFUL WOMAN? [SIGHS] OH, NOTHING.

I CAN SAY FOR YOU. FIRST RULE OF RACING: YOU CAN’T WIN IF YOU DON’T LEAVE
THE STARTING GATE. YOU CAN’T WIN WITH ME,
PERIOD. OH, WHAT’S THAT
SUPPOSED TO MEAN? THAT I’M DONE.
I’M OVER THE HILL. YOU’RE ONLY 5, T.J. SURE, IN HUMAN YEARS. IN HORSE YEARS,
I’M WAY PAST DEAD. OH, DON’T TEMPT ME. GET REAL. I’VE CROSSED THE FINISH LINE
FOR THE LAST TIME. YOU’VE NEVER EVEN
CROSSED A FINISH LINE. IT’S TIME TO PUT ME
OUT TO STUD. YOU KNOW WHAT, T.J.? MAYBE YOU’RE RIGHT. [CHILDREN LAUGHING] [TRAIN TOOTS] [TOOT TOOT] [CHILDREN’S SONG PLAYING] I’M DISAPPOINTED. I EXPECTED
A BETTER CLASS OF HORSE
AT A STUD FARM. THAT’S BECAUSE
THIS ISN’T A STUD FARM. WELL, DUH! SEE, STUD FARMS
ARE FOR STUDS. STUDS ARE WINNERS. STUDS DON’T QUIT. PONY RIDES,
ON THE OTHER HAND, THEY’RE FOR PLUGS. SO YOU CAN EITHER
START TRYING
OR YOU CAN– COME ON!

RUN ACROSS THE STREET. PEOPLE THOUGHT
I WAS CRAZY FOR TAKING HIM ON. BUT I WORKED WITH HIM, AND I STUCK WITH HIM… AND HE TURNED OUT TO BE
THE BEST RACEHORSE THIS TRACK

HECTOR. YEAH. YEAH. AND I STILL KNOW

HI. MR. MACHADO,
WE GOTTA TALK. SO TALK. IS T.J. EVER GONNA
GET A SHOT, OR WHAT? YEAH. IT’S LIKE
WE’RE GROWING OLD HERE. NO OFFENSE, MR. MACHADO. I TOLD YOU
I’D ENTER T.J.
IN A RACE WHEN I THOUGHT
HE WAS READY. HE’S READY.
DUDE, HE’S GOT
THE GATE DOWN, HE’S GOT THE SPEED, HE’S GOT THE SKILLS. WHO DO YOU LIKE
SATURDAY IN THE FOURTH? ARE YOU EVEN
LISTENING? COME ON. WHO DO YOU LIKE?
I’M THINKING
THE 7 HORSE. THUNDERJAM? MOODY, DO YOU KNOW
WHAT THIS MEANS? YEAH. SOMEBODY STOLE
OUR HORSE’S NAME. NO! WE’RE RACING! WE’RE RACING! YEAH, WE’RE RACING! DUDE, WE’RE RACING! MOODY,
WHERE ARE YOU GOING? I GOTTA GET IN UNIFORM!
WE’RE RACING! MOODY,
NOT TILL SATURDAY. BUMMER, DUDE. Machado: CYCLONE– FASTEST, MEANEST HORSE
ON THE WEST COAST. 14 STARTS
AND 10 WINS. NOW WATCH.
WATCH, WATCH. WATCH WHAT HE’S GONNA DO
OVER HERE. YOU SEE THAT?
NOW WATCH NUMBER 2. YOU SEE THAT BLOCK? RIGHT THERE!
THAT’S WHEN YOU GOTTA
MOVE ON THE INSIDE. THAT’S WHAT
YOU GOTTA ANTICIPATE. YOU GOTTA ANTICIPATE
THAT MOVE. SO WHAT’S HE DOING
RACING HERE? [SIGHS] WELL… GARRIS MUST BE PREPPING HIM
FOR A BIGGER PAYDAY. WE GOTTA KEEP T.J.
AWAY FROM HIM. HE’S BAD NEWS. LIKE OWNER, LIKE HORSE. YEAH. MR. MACHADO, CAN I
ASK YOU SOMETHING? SURE. WHAT IS IT WITH YOU
AND MR. GARRIS? OH, IT’S JUST
A FRIENDLY RIVALRY. NO. FRIENDS SHAKE HANDS AND SAY,
“HOW’S THE FAMILY?” NOT, “NICE TIE.
CAN I CHOKE YOU
WITH IT?” [CHUCKLING] WELL, I USED TO TRAIN
FOR HIM. NO WAY! YOU WORKED FOR
THE MAD MEAT GRINDER? WHEN I WAS YOUNG
AND HUNGRY. GARRIS HAD GREAT HORSES. IT WAS MY CHANCE
TO TRAIN A CHAMPION. WE HAD A FALLING OUT,
THAT’S ALL. OVER WHAT? YOU KNOW, UH–UH… HE HAD A COLT. IT WAS A GREAT HORSE,
WITH SPEED TO BURN. THE MORNING OF A RACE,
I NOTICED HIS HOOF
WAS HEATIN’ UP, AND, UH, THE VET
DID HIS CHECK,
BUT HE MISSED IT. NOW I WANTED TO SCRATCH
THE HORSE RIGHT AWAY, BUT GARRIS
WOULDN’T LET ME. HE TOLD ME IF THE VET
COULD OVERLOOK IT,
I SHOULD, TOO. BUT YOU CAN’T
PUT A RIDER
ON A HORSE LIKE THAT. IT’S LIKE ASKING
FOR TROUBLE. THAT’S WHAT
I TOLD GARRIS. SO, WHAT DID YOU DO? I QUIT… AND I TRIED TO WARN
THE JOCKEY,
BUT IT WAS TOO LATE. HE WAS ALREADY
AT THE GATE. THE HORSE WAS LEADING
BY A LENGTH IN THE STRETCH WHEN HE, UH,
WENT OVER THE RAIL. MANDEVILLE. MY DAD WAS
ON THAT HORSE. HE WAS A GOOD MAN, CORRIE,
AND A GREAT RIDER. HE, UH, ALWAYS KNEW
EXACTLY WHAT TO DO
AT JUST THE RIGHT TIME. HE KNEW HORSES
LIKE NO ONE ELSE. HE USED TO TELL ME
HE KNEW WHAT
THEY WERE THINKING. HE ONCE TOLD ME HE KNEW
WHAT THEY WERE SAYING. YOU KNOW, CORRIE,
I, UH… I TRIED TO STOP HIM,
BUT, UM… YOU DID WHAT
YOU COULD, HECTOR. IT WASN’T YOUR FAULT. MOM. I THOUGHT THIS MIGHT
BE A LATE NIGHT. WE WON’T
BE MUCH LONGER,
REALLY, MOM. YOU DON’T KNOW
YOUR TRAINER. HE AND YOUR FATHER USED TO STAY UP
ALL NIGHT
BEFORE A RACE TRYING TO FIND
ANY ADVANTAGE. I WAS JUST COMPANY. IT WAS YOUR DAD
WHO ALWAYS FOUND
A WAY TO WIN. WELL, I HOPE YOU FIND
A WAY TO WIN TOMORROW. ME, TOO. MOM? COME TO THE RACE
TOMORROW. I DON’T THINK SO,
CORRITA. I HAVE A LOT
OF MEMORIES THERE. IT WOULD REALLY
MEAN A LOT TO ME. PERHAPS ANOTHER TIME… BUT YOU WERE RIGHT
ABOUT HECTOR. HE’S A GREAT TRAINER… AND YOU SHOULD
LISTEN TO HIM. [SIGHS]
WELL, I G–I GUESS
WE SHOULD JUST, UM, CALL IT A NIGHT. HAVE SOME COFFEE. WE’RE GONNA BE HERE
FOR A WHILE. ALL RIGHT.

PRETTY MUCH AGREE THAT IT’S, UH, BEEN
A REALLY EXCITING SEASON THANKS TO A CRAZY HORSE
NAMED THUNDERJAM. [LAUGHS] UM, LET’S FACE IT.
IT’S BEEN A LONG TIME SINCE ANYTHING THIS GOOD
HAS HAPPENED AT SONORA. CORRIE, MOODY. WE ARE SO PROUD
OF WHAT YOU’VE DONE. HECTOR? MAN,
WAS I WRONG ABOUT T.J. I–I OWE YOU AN APOLOGY. APOLOGY ACCEPTED. LET’S BRING UP
THE CHAIRMAN
OF SONORA DOWNS, MR. BOB BETHELL. NOW HECTOR,
I KNOW IT’S USUALLY
THE TRAINER’S JOB TO DETERMINE
WHEN AND WHERE
HIS HORSE WILL RACE, BUT THIS AFTERNOON,
I TOOK THE LIBERTY OF ENTERING T.J.
IN A RACE, AND I HOPE
YOU WON’T MIND. WELL, T.J.’s ON A ROLL.
WE’LL TAKE ON ANY HORSE. WELL, THESE AREN’T
JUST ANY HORSES. I’VE ENTERED YOU
IN THE GOLD RUSH DERBY. ARE YOU KIDDING ME? NOPE. ARE YOU KIDDING ME? NOW HOLD ON, CORRIE.
NOW, MR. BETHELL, THE DERBY’S THE DAY
AFTER TOMORROW. YOU SAYING YOU CAN’T
GET HIM READY? WELL, NO. I MEAN,
HE’S READY NOW,
BUT, UH… I TALKED TO SANTA CLARITA
RACETRACK MYSELF. WITH ALL THE PUBLICITY
SURROUNDING T.J., THEY THINK HE’LL
BE PERFECT FOR THE RACE. Man: T.J. WILL DO GREAT!
WHAT DO YOU SAY? WELL… I SAY WE GO FOR IT.
YEAH! YEAH! ALL RIGHT! CONGRATULATIONS,
HECTOR. THANK YOU.
THANK YOU VERY MUCH. LISTEN, BOB.
THE GOLD RUSH IS A HALF-MILLION DOLLAR
STAKES RACE. THUNDERJAM’S
A 2-BIT CLAIMER AT BEST. HE’S GOT NO BUSINESS
IN A RACE LIKE THAT. I DISAGREE.
PEOPLE WANT TO SEE HIM. HE’S FUN. HE’S EXCITING. YOU COULD LEARN
SOMETHING FROM HIM. IT’S GONNA TAKE
MORE THAN HEADPHONES TO WIN THE GOLD RUSH,
HECTOR. YOU’RE RIGHT.
IT TAKES HEART. SOMETHING
YOU DON’T KNOW
ANYTHING ABOUT. EXCUSE ME. DON’T WORRY,
MR. GARRIS. CYCLONE’S
BEAT HIM BEFORE. HE CAN
DO IT AGAIN. CAN I HAVE
THIS DANCE? [MAN SINGING IN SPANISH] I CAN’T BELIEVE
WE’RE GOING
TO THE DERBY. I KNOW.
BUMMER, HUH? BUMMER? THIS IS LIKE
A DREAM COME TRUE. YEAH, FOR ME, MAYBE, BUT WHAT ABOUT YOU? WERE YOU BORN
THIS WEIRD, OR DID THOSE
CIRCUS ELEPHANTS
STEP ON YOUR HEAD? CORRIE,COMPADRE.
IT’S ME, MOODY. YOU DON’T HAVE
TO SANDBAG ME. WHAT ARE YOU
TALKING ABOUT? OK, IT’S–IT’S COOL THAT T.J.’s IN THE DERBY
AND ALL, YOU KNOW? BUT COME ON,
NOW WHO WOULD YOU
RATHER HAVE RIDING HIM? ME OR YOU? I KNOW WHAT IT’S LIKE
TO WANT A SHOT, AND NOBODY
WILL GIVE IT TO YOU. I JUST WANT YOU TO KNOW… THAT I THINK
YOU’RE A REALLY
GOOD RIDER. THANKS, MOODY. IT MEANS
A LOT TO ME. [HORSE NEIGHS] [HORSE NEIGHS] [NEIGHS] [SNORTS, NEIGHS] AH, HOW SWEET. YOU REMEMBER ME. [NEIGHS] [ROCK MUSIC PLAYS] LOOKS LIKE
I WAS WRONG
ABOUT YOU. MAYBE YOU ARE
WORTH MORE THAN
A BAG OF PEANUTS, BUT NO ONE
MAKES A FOOL
OUT OF ME. I’VE NEVER TOLD ANYONE
THIS BEFORE, BUT… I CAN… WELL, I CAN TALK
WITH HORSES. WELL, THAT’S COOL.
I USED TO TALK
TO MY HAMSTER. DID IT TALK BACK? [LAUGHS]
ARE YOU CRAZY? [LAUGHS]
YEAH. LET’S SEE HOW YOU RUN
WHEN THE MUSIC STOPS. [NEIGHS] [NEIGHS] AH, HORSE RACING,
CIRCUS RIDING. PRETTY MUCH
THE SAME THING. ONLY IN HORSE RACING,
UH, THERE’S NO THREAT OF BEING MUNCHED
BY A TIGER. [LAUGHS] [SNIFFS]
WHAT’S THAT? [NEIGHS] THAT’S–THAT’S SMOKE!
THAT’S FIRE! OH, NO! THIS IS NOT GOOD!
THIS IS NOT GOOD AT ALL! WHAT IS IT? IT’S T.J.
SOMETHING’S WRONG. WELL, WAIT UP. [NEIGHING] T.J.

AROUND BACK! OW. Paramedic:
YOU’RE GONNA
BE FINE. YOU CAN’T SCRATCH US
FROM THE RACE. THERE WILL BE OTHER RACES AFTER MOODY’S HANDS
HAVE HEALED. NOT LIKE THIS ONE. FIND YOURSELF
ANOTHER JOCKEY. WELL, THERE ISN’T
ENOUGH TIME. COME ON, MOM.
I CAN DO THIS. I CAN RIDE.
I’M READY. CORRIE, STOP.
I’M SORRY. I WANTED THIS
AS MUCH AS YOU DID. MR. MACHADO. WELL–WELL,
SHE’S GOOD. MAYBE EVEN BETTER
THAN HER FATHER, BUT WE’VE GOT TO DO
WHAT–WHAT YOUR MOM WANTS. PLEASE, MOM.
I’M READY. YOU MAY BE READY
TO RIDE, CORRITA, BUT I AM NOT READY
TO LET YOU. WELL, WHAT ABOUT
WHAT I WANT? YOU WON’T BE ABLE
TO STAND IN HER WAY
FOREVER. SHE WAS BORN
FOR THIS. HI. HI, MOM. I KNOW
HOW DISAPPOINTED
YOU ARE. YOU WORKED
SO HARD FOR THIS. WE HAD A DREAM. WE WERE ALL GONNA
DO SOMETHING GREAT
TOGETHER. IT WASN’T SUPPOSED
TO END THIS WAY. I REMEMBER SAYING THAT
WHEN YOUR FATHER DIED. BUT THEN,
I HAD A FEELING. MAYBE NOTHING ENDED
AFTER ALL.
NOT COMPLETELY. EVERY TIME
I LOOK AT YOU, I SEE YOUR FATHER. YOU HAVE HIS EYES,
HIS PASSION. AS MUCH AS I’VE TRIED
NOT TO BELIEVE IT… YOU HAVE
A WONDERFUL GIFT. YOUR FATHER’S GIFT. I THINK I’VE KNOWN IT
FOR A LONG TIME, BUT… I KEPT TRYING
TO IGNORE IT. I CAN’T DO THAT ANYMORE. I CANNOT STAND
IN THE WAY OF YOU
AND YOUR GIFT. THEN… I WANT YOU
TO HAVE THESE. DAD’S RACING SILKS? HE WOULD WANT YOU
TO WEAR THEM… IN THE DERBY. I CAN RIDE? I CAN RIDE, MOM? I CAN RIDE? IF THAT’S
WHAT YOU WANT. YES. THIS IS UNBELIEVABLE. I HAVE TO GO TELL MOODY
AND MR. MACHADO. I ALREADY TOLD THEM. THEY’RE WAITING FOR YOU
IN THE BARN. THANKS, MOM.POR NADA.THANK YOU SO MUCH. WELL, THAT’S EVERYTHING. DUDE, WE’RE MISSING
SOMETHING. WHAT? OUR SECRET WEAPON. HANDLE WITH CARE. THANKS. BUT WHAT
IF I’M NOT READY? WILL YOU STOP WORRYING? I’M NOT GONNA
LET ANYTHING HAPPEN
TO YOU. WELL, I MEAN,
IT’S NOT LIKE I’VE RIDDEN
IN A REAL RACE. YOU’RE A NATURAL. THERE’S A BIG DIFFERENCE
BETWEEN A WORKOUT
AND A RACE. YOU’VE GOT ALL YOU NEED
TO BE GREAT, IN HERE. YOU’VE JUST GOT
TO BELIEVE IT UP HERE. YOU ARE ONE NUTTY HORSE. OK. READY FOR
YOUR ROAD TRIP? LET’S GO. I–I THINK
I HAVE EVERYTHING. I HOPE I DIDN’T
FORGET ANYTHING.AYE, MAMI.

PULL IT. BAA! THANK YOU, CRUMPY.
GOATS. BAA! Announcer: OH, A LATE
BREAKING PIECE OF NEWS. THE STEWARDS HAVE RULED
THAT THUNDERJAM WILL NOT BE ALLOWED
TO RACE WITH HIS
TRADEMARK HEADPHONES. [CROWD GASPS, BOOS] Announcer: THIS COULD BE
A SERIOUS SETBACK FOR THE UPSTART HORSE. THIS IS JUST–
IT’S–IT’S CRAZY! THE RULE SAYS
NO ELECTRONIC DEVICE
CAN BE USED TO INCREASE
THE PERFORMANCE
OF A HORSE. THE RULE MEANS
YOU CAN’T SHOCK A HORSE TO MAKE HIM RUN FASTER. I KNOW.
THAT WAS THE INTENT. WELL, THEN,
CHANGE THE RULING. I’M SORRY.
THERE’S NOTHING
I CAN DO. WELL, BUT WHAT…
[SIGHS] [NEIGHS] WHAT DID HE SAY? WELL, THERE WON’T
BE ANY HEADPHONES.
NOT IN THIS RACE. WHAT ARE YOU
TALKING ABOUT, DUDE? GARRIS FILED A COMPLAINT. SO, WHAT DO WE DO? WELL, WE COULD RACE HIM
WITHOUT THE HEADPHONES, OR NOT RACE HIM AT ALL. NOW, CORRIE,
THIS IS YOUR CALL.
T.J.’s YOUR HORSE. ACTUALLY, THIS ONE’S
NOT MY CALL. IT’S T.J.’s. T.J.’s? SO, WHAT DO YOU SAY,
T.J.? WE’VE ALL WORKED TOO HARD,
AND WE’VE COME TOO FAR
TO QUIT NOW. SO, WHAT DID HE SAY? LET’S RIDE. OK. YEAH. ALL RIGHT,
NOW LISTEN. NOW WE KNOW
HOW GARRIS LIKES
TO RUN CYCLONE, SO, LET’S NOT MAKE
THE SAME MISTAKE
TWICE. NOW CYCLONE LIKES
TO GET OUT FRONT
EARLY, SO STAY WITH HIM
IF YOU CAN. NOW IF T.J. GETS
TOO CLOSE TO HIM
ON THE OUTSIDE, CYCLONE’S GONNA
WANT TO BLOCK HIM, SO, WHEN HE DOES,
DUCK INSIDE AND GET
RIGHT TO THE RAIL, OK? I THINK SO. OK. LET’S GO.
COME. GOOD LUCK. THANKS.
[NEIGHS] [SPEAKING SPANISH] LOOK. THEY’RE JUST
GETTING READY. NOW LISTEN.
I DON’T KNOW IF YOU
CAN HEAR ME OR NOT, BUT IF YOU CAN,
HEAR THIS. IF ANYTHING HAPPENS
TO THAT GIRL, I’LL SHOOT YOU
MYSELF.
YOU GOT THAT? [SNORTS] OK. HAVE A GREAT RACE. THANKS. IT’S ABOUT TIME
YOU GOT HERE. WHAT TOOK YOU SO LONG? HEY, IT AIN’T EASY
WORKING WITH A GOAT. NO OFFENSE, CRUMPY. THEY’RE COMING
INTO THE GATE. HEY GUYS,
TIME TO START
BETTING. WHO WANTS
TO BE A MILLIONAIRE? HECTOR. WELCOME
TO THE BIG LEAGUES. I’M GONNA GIVE YOU
SOME ADVICE. KEEP YOUR HORSE
OUT OF THE WAY. THE SLOW ONES TEND
TO GET RUN OVER. [LAUGHS] Announcer: WAITING
ON CYCLONE AND THUNDERJAM CORRIE ORTIZ ABOARD
THUNDERJAM TODAY REPLACING THE REGULAR
JOCKEY, B. MOODY, WHO HAS BEEN SIDELINED
WITH AN INJURY. THIS IS IT, HUH? YEAH. IT’S GONNA BE GREAT. THERE’LL BE NO MERCY
THIS TIME,
THUNDERBLUNDER. YOU ARE MINE.
ALL MINE. DON’T LISTEN TO HIM,
CORRIE. HE’S JUST MESSING
WITH OUR HEADS. YOU ARE GOING DOWN,
THUNDERJAM.
OH, YOU ARE– I’M NOT LISTENING.
I’M NOT LISTENING. Announcer: AND NOW,
THE FLAG IS UP. [BELL RINGS] Announcer:
AND THEY’RE OFF. AND CYCLONE OFF
TO A SHARP START. THEY’RE GOING RIGHT OUT
AFTER THE LEAD. OH, CORRIE ORTIZ HAVING
DIFFICULTIES THERE COMING OUT OF THE GATE
WITH THUNDERJAM… COME ON!
GO, CORRIE! WE GOT SQUEEZED!
ARE YOU OK? YEAH, YEAH, I’M OK!
GO! GO! Announcer: AND AS THEY
COME TO THE FIRST TURN, AND BOLD VILLAIN
RUNNING IN THIRD. YAZOO MOON
HUGS THE RAIL… [ALL CHEER] [ALL GROAN] AND THEN THUNDERJAM,
TRAILING THEM ALL
AS HE HAS THROUGHOUT. PERHAPS TOO MANY
DIFFICULTIES
TO OVERCOME TODAY. NEVERTHELESS,
A TRIBUTE TO THE
GAME LITTLE HORSE FOR BEING
IN THIS RACE AT ALL. I’LL BE RIGHT BACK,
MR. MACHADO. Announcer: AND CYCLONE
MOVING STRONG
AT THE FRONT… POOR THUNDERJAM. OH, MAN. I KNEW
THAT THUNDERBUCKET
WOULD MESS THIS UP. UH, LOOK GUYS.
IS IT TOO LATE
TO CHANGE A BET? Announcer: 46 AND 2
THE FIRST HALF MILE. A TESTING PACE AS THEY GO
INTO THE FAR TURN, AND– EXCUSE ME, DUDE. HOPE YOU CAN
HEAR THIS, T.J. [ROCK MUSIC PLAYS] WHAT THE? [CROWD CHEERS] T.J., LISTEN.

IT’S MOODY! I HEAR IT.
JUST HANG ON! Announcer: AND THUNDERJAM

SOME GROUND ON THE OUTSIDE, BUT SHE’S GOT
A LONG WAY TO GO. OH! GO, CORRIE! GO!
