And Down The Stretch Comes Murder

No, this post is not about a real murder. BUT this post is about a Television episode that involves solving a murder around a race track.

If you have ever watched the series Psych on cable, it is a fun detective show; aimed at my generation for the most part. I found the episode very refreshing and was excited with how it casually portrayed the industry as awesome, hip and fun. The plot starts by a jockey mysteriously dying during a race. There is also a side plot of the two main character's experiences with a bully in grade school. I don't want to fill in too much, because the show really does a great job doing so.

If you have an interest in light hearted, yet very good storyline shows, watch it.

This episode is available on Netflix, along with the entire season, or download from Amazon and probably iTunes.

Hear from the writer of this episode of Psych as he explains his influences and thoughts for the show. He speaks of the track, track experiences and a racing movie.

Is the horse racing episode the very first show, or in the first season. I'd love to watch it.

I am a regular viewer of Psych and saw this episode in its' original airing.  I thought it was one of the best aired.  Besides being excited over the backdrop of the race track, the story line was quite believable and the actual show quite good.

That episode was pretty credible (I like that show anyway). The Mentalist did one involving horse racing not long ago that had me cringing a couple of times. Won't spoil it in case anyone watches it, but if you are even a little familiar with racing, you'll catch a few errors. BUT, it's just great to see that racing is being treated as relevant.
