When one thinks of horses and television it's natural to conger up yesteryear and Mr. Ed, but not this week on NBC. "Ed" the television show, will feature a trip to the races, a hypothetical racetrack, Jasper Park, actually filmed at Monmouth Park in August. The episode airs Wednesday night at 8 p.m.
The episode, entitled "Will Ed Be Trampled by His Own Dream of Owning Or Owing a Racehorse?" will show star Tom Cavanagh, "Ed," who also directs, and co-star Josh Randall, "Mike," act on a whim-- and a whinny-- as they fullfill their childhood dream of owning a racehorse by overpaying at an auction as they discover that the sport of kings can soon consume the income of paupers.
