THOROUGHBRED (Animal Planet - Episode #8 - COUNTRY HORSE, CITY RACE)
Traveling in the Bonita Farm horse van up the eastern seaboard, Kevin and his wife Chris, who works at the farm as an exercise rider, find a rare moment they can spend together away from the farm and family, as they take a nervous filly to a race at Aqueduct near New York City.
Meanwhile, back at the farm, viewers will meet the man who gets assigned the toughest horses in the barn - Shorty. A salty old horseman, Shorty has been with the farm for thirty years riding racehorses. As he rides the most difficult horses in the barn, he reveals his secrets of what it takes to control the most high-strung thoroughbreds.
Finally, viewers can join the family as two of the grandchildren ride in the first races of their lives. They get plenty of advice before their pony races, as they try to live up to their family's legacy. After winning his race, Kevin's son Fritz gets his first lesson about the highs and lows that are a part of horse racing when he gets disqualified for a minor mistake.
