Amy Jo Johnson on "Wildfire" - 5 (2006)

Amy Jo Johnson (Kimberly, MMPR) continued her recurring role on the family drama "Wildfire" in the first episode of the second season. Picking up where the Season 1 finale left off, Johnson's character, professional jockey Tina Sharp is now riding for the Davis family, the Ritters' neighbors and business rivals. Tina's past in the Ritter camp seems to come in very handy as she gets set to ride in the big race against her rival Kris Furillo (series star Genevieve Cortese). Not only does Tina try to get under Kris's skin during the race, but she yells orders to the Ritter horse Wildfire. Given that she was its former jockey, the horse obeys her commands and slows down, which causes Kris to lose the race. Tina takes the victory and the Davis family walks away with the trophy that Kris knows she could have won. This episode, titled "Try it Without the Porsche" was Amy Jo Johnson's fifth appearance on the series.

Season 2 of "Wildfire" is available on DVD
