      • Technical Advisor for this episode was real-life jockey Sam Jones.

      • Uncle Charley mentions that he had a rider's license back in Indiana indicating that he doesn't currently live there.

      • Don L. Brodie (who also appears in Episodes # 249 and 288) was a character actor that appeared uncredited in literally hundreds of movies from the period 1932-1989. He died aged 101 years in January 2001 (b. April 1899).
