After the man finds out it will cost more to fix his wagon than he has, he heads to the Ambrosia where he proceeds to lose his wagon and team!! During a visit to the Call ranch, Mosby suggests a little wager. .if Newt can beat him in an upcoming horse race, he will return the couples wagon and team. If Newt loses however, his horse will be Mosby's!!! The day of the race arrives and just as Newt is winning, some boys ""borrow"" the doctors new bicycle right into the path of the oncoming horses.
