THOROUGHBRED (Animal Planet - Episode #5 - THE BIG TEASE)
In this episode at Bonita Farm, Bill and Kevin have high hopes for a three-year-old colt named NORTHBRIDGE - a son of the farm's Preakness champion, DEPUTED TESTAMONY. Unfortunately, NORTHBRIDGE isn't showing his father's heart and determination in training. Still, Bill and Kevin believe in the young horse. Despite his lackluster performance during training, they think he might be the kind of horse that saves his energy for race day. There's only one way to find out, so they take him to the track for a race. He puts on a spectacular performance - winning the race decidedly.
Meanwhile, in the mare barn, oldest son Billy and his vets are coping with a foal that has been born with feeble legs and can't stand up on its own.
NORTHBRIDGE's big win and the foal's struggle to survive show once again that there is no such thing as a restful day at Bonita Farm.
