Robert Banyon is shot while watching and recording a horse race, alone, from his private luxury suite. The murder weapon turns out to be a cattle 'bolt gun', found hidden in his horses' paddock. Stable hand, Terrance Chase, has obvious access. He was visited by the scorned Chicago 'would be' stable partner Wayne Tully. Horse vet Mark Gantry's abandoned son, Billy, leads Horatio to a connection with Ryan from his gambling days. At the Gantry home he fought off Russian mob lord Ivan Sarnoff's goon. There is race cheating. Cocaine seems to link everything.

Regarding the same scene when Wolfe and Horatio assumed the Russian guy had just arrived to Miami because of the time difference it is impossible to know that an analogue watch is 11 hours ahead if it is set before midnight. If that is the case the date will be the same and so the watch can be 11 hours ahead or 1 hour behind. See more
