Follyfoot: Shadow (ITV 19 Jul 1971, with Sam Kydd)



In Shadow Dora is training a troublesome valuable steeplechaser that is refusing to jump, she quickly realise that it doesn’t like having a bit in it’s mouth and comes up with another solution that solves the problem.

Ron Stryker meanwhile, knowing that the horse is a top quality racer, spots a chance to make a few quid and enters her into a local race.

Typical Ron Stryker shenanigans see him teaming up with the very unlikable Lewis again as well as the always fabulous Sam Kydd who is a bookmaker who also gets involved in Ron’s scheme.
