"Sport Of Kings"
WHEN JOCKEY IS SHOT DOWN, POLICE GO DOWN THE STRETCH AND LOOK FOR KILLER AT RACETRACK -- The shooting death of a Panamanian horse jockey puts Detectives Fontana (Dennis Farina) and Falco (guest star Michael Imperioli, "The Sopranos") on the track of a pack of colorful suspects who inhabit the competitive racing world, forcing them to nudge jockeys, trainers -- and even a rich owner -- to discover who would murder the rider over his desire to ride one particular horse. However, their probe reveals that the victim challenged the registry and selling details of the prized three-year-old, leading the cops and A.D.A. McCoy (Sam Waterston) to a corporate head who bought the thoroughbred with stolen funds. Annie Parisse, S. Epatha Merkerson and Fred Dalton Thompson also star.
