While looking for horse hair at a local racetrack to make high-tensile cable, Fitzhugh and Barry watch the horse races. Upon finding a ticket that he believes is a winning one, Fitzhugh tries to cut a deal with a giant bum, Moley. Moley ends up spilling his guts to the head of track security, and Mark and the women get captured.
While Steve and Dan try to rescue them, Fitzhugh and Barry witness a hood trying to drug a horse Fitzhugh believes will win the next race. Fitzhugh gives him a hotfoot, and the others escape when they use the drug hypodermic to knock out the head of security. At the end Moley makes another bet and wins at incredible odds. He gives Fitzhugh his cut...which is more giant-sized money then he can possibly carry back to the ship, or even use.
