Background information and notes

  • This episode is based on the Helen Brach case.
  • Kincaid was played by Jill Hennessy's identical twin sister, Jacqueline Hennessy, in certain courtroom scenes. This was because Jill was filming in Baltimore for the crossover episode of Homicide: Life on the Street, which was broadcast a few weeks later. Jacqueline Hennessy's performance was uncredited.
  • Another episode in the Law & Order franchise that has the detectives investigating horse related crimes is the Law & Order: Criminal Intent episode "Ill-Bred".
