Premium: Shoud I buy Brain Damaged Horse and Quahog Derby Stables?

If you are wondering whether you should buy the Brain Damaged Horse and Quahog Derby Stables, maybe these Pros and Cons will help you decide:


  • Earns XP every 7 hours
  • Earns $ every 11 hours
  • You’ll receive a new building for your town
  • A new character (or pet?)
  • New tasks
  • Earn premium amounts of $ and XP
  • Considerably cheap – 120 Clams ($4.99)
  • Great for completists


  • The horse is ‘retarded’ (not my choice of words)
  • He isn’t going to make you a millionnaire as he is rubbish at racing!
  • The Brain Damaged Horse caused the Griffin family to temporarily split due to Peter resorting to medical drug trials
  • He only has one appearance in the TV show during Season 7, episode 8 (so not that famous, maybe if he had won a few races, OK – just one race?!)
  • The first and only appearance was 8th March 2009 (over 5 years ago!)
  • I can’t find anything about the Quahog Derby Stables (only the race track) so I am assuming that it either has not appeared in the TV show, or it just wasn’t that significant… (please correct me if I am wrong)

In my opinion, I would not buy the horse and stables – but, if I had collected enough free Clams from my friend’s Quahog towns, and he was the only premium character/animal I hadn’t bought, I would have too, but only then!

The Pros and Cons have helped me decide, what do you think?

  1. Honestly, the Brain-Damaged Horse has no true benefits I’ve seen so far when it comes to collecting stuff to help unlock other characters (I’m currently in the Entertainment District, attempting to unlock Stewie and Carter, and I used clams to buy this retard back in District 3), but having it does help out with earning XP and money, even if it isn’t a whole lot.

    I guess it all depends on preference. At the same time, you would need to buy him to complete the 5 characters you buy section in your character’s list, assuming you’ve also been able to obtain Human Rupert.


  2. What are his tasks? I also noticed that they finally added sounds on him yesterday when I tapped on him in one of my neighbors which is good. I may get him eventually if I decide to buy some clams but waiting for other premium characters that were on the show more than once. On a side note, I don’t remember Buzz on the show either. I was thinking of Carter when I saw him but realized it’s not him.


    1. I am in the process of putting the Brain Damaged Horse’s tasks together for a post, should be ready later for publishing! I will write a ‘What does ______ say?’ and try to interpret his noises :/ I think it is a good idea to wait to buy a premium character that plays more of a role in the show, than just once. Buzz hasn’t been in the show often either, have you bought any premium characters yet?
