good episode
15 May 2010 | by noahwlcSee all my reviews

This episode wasn't perfect, but it was still pretty good. Bart and Homer save a horse named Dunkin after being abused at the state fair at a diving horse exhibit. They turn him into a race horse and change his name to Furious D, but the small jockey horse racers don't like the fact he wins every race, so they try to convince Homer to loose the championship race. Meanwhile Lisa is mad that her school band looses the Battle of the Elementary School Bands to Ogdenville because she claims that they cheated, so she tries to contact President Bill Clinton to change the results of the competition. This episode also includes the special guest voices of BTO.
