Panel 1: Doc Unknown is putting on a jockey's uniform in front of Horse 8, Professor Clumsy, in the stables of Gate City Fields, where Boss Andretti, the city's don, has been using fixed races to launder money. The proper jockey for the horse is tied up and knocked out in the locker Doc Unknown has taken the uniform from.
Thoughtballoon(Doc): IF I'M GOING TO BRING BOSS ANDRETTI DOWN, I'M GOING TO NEED AIRTIGHT PROOF, AND WHAT BETTER WAY TO DO THAT THAN FROM THE FRONT LINE?
Panel 2: Close on an envelope of money taped to the inside of the locker. The envelope is labeled HORSE 8- RIDE FAST, RIDE WELL.
Thoughtbaloon(Doc): IF THIS MONEY IS ANY INDICATION, I'M GOING TO BE RIDING TONIGHT'S LUCKY HORSE.
Panel 3: Doc Unknown is on his horse in the arena, along with the other jockeys, who he can see have small guns on them, tranq pistols.
