Curly, thinking they're peanuts, accidentally feeds the horse, Thunderbolt, some hot chillis. His mouth on fire, Thunderbolt runs for the water trough and they discover just how fast he is.
They enter Thunderbolt in a race. Larry serves as the jockey and feeds Thunderbolt more chillis. Moe and Curly, riding a motorcycle, carry a bucket of water in front of Thunderbolt to get him to run. Thunderbolt, chasing the water, blows by the rest of the horses and wins the race, winning Moe, Larry and Curly five thousand dollars.
