Alfred Hitchcock Presents - The Horse Player


"The Horse Player" (directed by Alfred Hitchcock) was originally broadcast on 14/Mar/1961 as part of the sixth season of Alfred Hitchcock Presents.


The Reverend Amian is the pastor of a small church. He gets a sizable contribution from a horse race gambler named Sheridan. Sheridan has apparently prayed to win and has been successful. He gives the priest a tip on a horse. The priest gives him $500 of the church's savings to bet on the horse. Amian's conscience gets to him, however, and prays for the horse to lose. It does. Sheridan arrives and tells the priest that he bet his money on the horse to win and it almost did, but suddenly quit. The gambler also says he didn't want to risk the church's money on a win, and instead bet on the horse to show. Since it did, the church won $2,100. (TV.com)
