“Splendid is a famous and undefeated racehorse. All of a sudden, he starts losing races. One, two, three in a row. Emilio Sierra, its owner, tries to recover in every possible way, but does not succeed. Then he decides to sacrifice him believing the horse is sick. At the last moment, Carlos Rojas, a young veterinarian, appears, who saves the horse with the simplest and most surprising treatment. Splendid returns to run and win.”
