Trivia

Twin horses featured in this episode are called Castor's Folly and Pollock's Dream, according to signs on their stalls. In Greek and Roman mythology, Castor and Pollux (not Pollock) were twins who were transformed into the constellation Gemini ("The Twins"). Pollock is the common name for various species of edible fish. See more »

Goofs

For the big race at the end, the horses first load into the gate on the turf course, however, all subsequent footage of the race is made up of a montage of multiple races on dirt. See more »

Quotes

Grace Van Pelt: Wait. Did you okay this with Lisbon?
Patrick Jane: I certainly did. What kind of question is that, anyway? It's almost like you don't trust me.
