SEASON 1 EPISODE 21.

"Front Runner"
June 9 1959.

** Spoiler Alert **

SYNOPSIS: A dying jockey, Ronnie Watson, recounts a strange story to a reporter from the Chronicle:
he once cheated his beloved mentor, Sam Barry, out of an important victory at the racetrack because his
girlfriend Rita has left him for the older man. Years later, Barry exacted a bizarre revenge of sorts when he
cost Watson a win on the same track, even though Barry had died the day before in Uruguay.

COMMENTARY: Those pesky scale of justice are righted once more in this episode, a story of a friendship
gone sour and of revenge that stretches from beyond the grave. The spirit of a dead man comes back from
the dead, obsessed with incidents that occurred during his life . . .
