Good boy, Miracle!

Come on, take your neck!

Catch or I'll give birth to you!

? Yes?, Dare and you'll

see what happens to you!

Ah, the last

stallion I had left.

How do you think I'm going to

take a block without a stallion?

That is your thing.

Fix them as you can.

Hey, Limpy, wait a minute.

Take that horse to the barn.

I have a bank order, Mr.


My son's imbecile sold

it to Abe Kenyon.

I'll go to the bank and

fix it with Mr. Kenyon.

Very good, Mr. Bradley. Fix it.

Of course I will fix it!

Come on, return the horse to

the barn as I told you before.

How daring!

, Try to take my horse!

My son is an est.

How do you think I'm going to

raise horses without a stallion?

Thinking it well, that would

be a real feat, grandfather.

They want me to sell everything I have.

I suppose Moon Ray will

be next on the list.

I'm surprised he has

not tried to sell me.

Have you received any offers?

Stop joking, Duke.

When I was young, Brookvale was

the showcase for Saratoga.

When I brought my wife

from Niagara Falls,

I have a hard time making

her enter the house.

I wanted to see the

champions in the stables.

You're proud of

Brookvale, right?

I was then.

But now, we have more

horses dead than alive.



All were great champions.

No block from Kentucky

could match us.

These Blue-grass were acclaimed

throughout the country.

In 1881, when my

father was young,

It was toasted by the champions

of our stable with champagne

in the shoes of the ladies.

?For real?

There's Ebony Star, the

best foal of the 90s.

I got all the

trophies of his time

and his record has never been matched.

And there's Blue Bolt, son of

Flying Demon and Mad Power.

There is his grandfather.

And here, his father, Dawn Boy.

The best horse in the

history of American racing.

I raised him, trained him and

buried him myself. Yes, I know.

Why is Dawn Boy's grave

in front of the others?

Because Dawn Boy was always

in front of the others.

It is the place it

deserves, alive or dead.

- Grandpa, I love you.

- Mr. Clayton.

Mr. Clayton, they call

you on the phone.

Conference of London, England.

Carol is orlando.

He will want to talk

to his father, not me.

Tell him he has gone to the doctor.

I can not talk to someone who

is so far away, it scares me.

- Talk to her, please.

- It's fine.

I'm just his grandfather and I

can not talk to her anymore.

She has become so presumptuous

since she is in Europe.

He already talks to royalty.

His father is worried.

He is always traveling and

never leaves an address.

Yes, he needs good spanking.

It's not a bad thing, Mr.

Duke, it's the way it is.

Rosetta, I love you.


, Say!

Hi. Hi, dad. Dad, I'm Carol.

Prepare for a surprise.

I'm getting married.

It seems fine, but do not bring

anyone to scare your father.

?With whom I speak?

My name is Duke Bradley and I

am a friend of his father.

You should be too.

- Tell my father to wear it.

- ? Who?

An idiot.

I want to talk to my father.

It is not here.

Where can you locate it?

I'm in Northborough House.

And the address?

It's the mansion of the

Duke of Northborough.

It would be better to take

off the tiara and go home.


Who do you think he talks to?


D game where my father

is so I can call him.

I'll tell him, he went to see the doctor.

He has problems with the heart.

The heart?? It is something serious?

I would be better if I

did not have anything.

Tell him I'm back

on the first ship.

Very good, very much, although you

come with that foreign monkey.

- ? What did you say?

- Nothing.

Please, tell my father that

I marry a good American,

Hartley Madison from New York.


Hartley Madison.

Congratulations, doll, you

have caught a big fish.

Bring her home, I

want to kiss her.

Wait, here is your father.

?Listen?? Listen?


He has hung me.

This is Ms. Carol, a character

since she was born.

Hi Frank.

I just talked with your daughter.

With Carol? How are you?

Prepare for good news.

The little lady has caught a rich man.

- ? Caught?

- Going to get married.

- , Do not!

- With Hartley Madison.

- Well, do not tell me.

- That millionaire from New York?

The same.

, An idiot in the family!

Everything will go well!

, We will have a

real stud again!

, Hundreds of mares and horses!

, We'll put Brookvale

back where he belongs!

- , The best!

- Exactly, Rosetta.

- Wait. Did you call him an idiot?

- Clear.

Who was the one who won you

50 thousand dollars in Belmont?

- Hartley Madison.

- I thought so. And is he an idiot?

Madison retires

when I was winning.

His father died and he had

to take over the business.

But the next time...

,Quiet!, I'll help you!

I'll have Carol bring him here.

Grandpa, you are a friend.

- Are you crazy, Duke?

- ? Why?

A guy like Madison

can ruin any bettor.

He has more money than the government.

Frank, since the Depression

I've made small bets.

50 dollars, 100 dollars,

1,000 dollars at the most.

But the good times have returned.

Your little daughter will

bring a lined guy home.

I think you have a lot of courage.

Frank, I love you.

?What did the doctor say to you?

- Did you want Kenyon to Miracle Lad?

- I think so,

but Duke did not leave

that they will take it.


He said that he will fix it

everything with Kenyon.

No, it will not.

Frank, this is between
