Col. Taylor: Bret, day you brought that mare out to my place she dang near set a record. Today she was just another good horse. Now how do you figure a thing like that?
Bret: That's quite a question.
Col. Taylor: I got a feeling you know the answer. Wanna tell me I'm wrong?
Bret: Well, Colonel, it-it's like this, uh … I got out to your place a little early that day and … the fact is, about daybreak. Well, I sort of … moved your starting post forward about 20 yards. Uh, now, don't ask me why I did it, I had a very good reason at the time. Just … didn't work out.
Col. Taylor: I would ask ya why, but I might not like the answer. So I'll ask a favor instead.
Bret: Anything at all, Colonel.
Col. Taylor: Next time you visit Hollow Rock, don't make it on the 4th of July.
