Gingersnap
1 October 2019 | by JordanThomasHallSee all my reviews

Sam's cousin Vince (voice actor Jack Grimes), a former jockey turned horse trainer, phones that he is coming to visit. Vince soon arrives with a thoroughbred racehorse named Gingersnap that he was given in lieu of payment. Gingersnap is a poor racehorse despite good bloodlines. Vince is planning to leave the industry and join a friend in Baltimore as a partner in a restaurant. He asks Sam to leave Gingersnap and try and sell him for $300. Aunt Bee laments Gingersnap's fate. Mike enjoys teaching Gingersnap tricks. Emmett tells Sam he believes he has a buyer in Mr. Bowers (Byron Morrow) who runs Walnut Hills Girls' Boarding School. When he arrives to inspect the horse, Aunt Bee purposely scares him off from the horse. She asks Sam to race Gingersnap at Morgan Downs and offers to put up the fees herself. Aunt Bee arranges with the track manager Brice (Judson Pratt) for a jockey (Lou Wagner, "Planet of the Apes") to race Gingersnap in the Blue Ridge Stakes. Aunt Bee's discredited advice may have a lasting effect.
