"This is an adventure episode from "The Wonderful World of Disney" television show that played on Sunday nights from 1953 to 1983. "Bluegrass Special", originally aired in 1977. This is a story about horse racing, and believe it or not features Davey Jones of "The Monkees", who actually was a racing jockey in Britain before joining the Monkees in the 1960's. The horse is the story is named Woodhill, and he is beautiful but very difficult to work with. He has a bad reputation for hurting his own riders. But a young girl named Penny wants to be a jockey and sees the horses potential and knows he needs a special touch, and convinces her aunt to buy the horse to race in the Bluegrass Special. Nice family fare and I and my son really enjoy it.
I highly recommend this video and others in the series."
