  • Fred wants to buy Boulder Dan's pool parlor, but the only way he can raise the money is to win at the racetrack. He does, but then he is robbed.

    "At the Races" was recorded on April 18, 1960, and originally aired on Nov. 18, 1960.
    These are my comments and questions about the episode:
    1. The 1960 theme song and opening credits are played.
    2. This episode shows one of Fred's numerous bosses before the arrival of Mr. Slate.
    3. There is a blooper in this episode. In the mugging scene, Fred's orange outfit temporarily loses its black spots!
    4. The "Colonel" will reappear in a number of episodes, sometimes with a different story background, but always with a Texas accent. I have to wonder if it isn't the same guy all the time, continually trying to con the people of Bedrock into believe his stories.
