* AsHimself: South African horse racing announcer Trevor Denman, who wasn't credited for his appearance, is the announcer for all of Duncan's/Furious D's races. He even uses his real-life CatchPhrase - "''AND AAAAAAAWAY THEY GO!''" - at the start of each race.


Added DiffLines:

* AudienceSurrogate: The Comic Book Guy becomes one in this episode.

* AudienceSurrogate: The Comic Book Guy becomes one in this episode.episode, pointing out that it recycles old plots and character traits (such as the Simpsons having a horse and Marge's gambling).



* ContinuityNod / NoodleIncident: Lenny's eye injury
* CouldHaveAvoidedThisPlot: It was already established that the jocky’s were angry at Duncan's attitude so the fact that they wanted to kill him wasn’t that far fetched. So the fact that they were elves weren’t necessary.



-->'''Marge:''' Hmmm. Should the Simpsons get a horse?
-->'''Comic Book Guy:''' Excuse me, I believe [[Recap/TheSimpsonsS3E8LisasPony this family already had a horse]], and the expense forced Homer to work at the Kwik-E-Mart, with [[HilarityEnsues hilarious consequences]].
-->'''Homer:''' (''pause'') Anybody care what this guy thinks?

* HeartSymbol: Parodied and deconstructed. Moe meets a beautiful woman at a horse racing track, and his heart starts beating out of his chest like in the older, wackier [[UsefulNotes/TheGoldenAgeOfAnimation Golden Age of Animation]] cartoons (particularly the ''WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes'' and [[WesternAnimation/TexAveryMGMCartoons MGM]] cartoons directed by Creator/TexAvery). When he notices this, he identifies this as the symptom of a serious medical problem, and says he has to leave for the hospital.
* InTheStyleOf: This whole episode is basically in the style of ''FamilyGuy'' (minus the [[CutawayGag cutaways]] that ''Guy'' was known for).
* SomethingElseAlsoRises: See HeartSymbol above.

In this BizarroEpisode, Homer and Bart adopt a horse (again) and train it to be a {{badass}} on the racetrack, which irks a secret society of jockey elves. Meanwhile, Lisa files a complaint to President UsefulNotes/BillClinton over an unfair judgment at the county fair's Battle of the Bands.
