Horseplay refers to the decapitation of Jack Woltz's horse Khartoum after a failed negotiation between him and Tom Hagen.

Book and filmEdit

Shortly after Connie Corleone's wedding, Tom Hagen flew out to Los Angeles to meet with Woltz over securing a part for Vito Corleone's godson Johnny Fontane. Woltz angrily refused, as Johnny had recently deflowered one of his proteges. In return, Corleone had Woltz's favourite racehorse decapitated by Luca Brasi.

In the gameEdit

In The Godfather: The Game, the events take place much later in 1948. Up and coming enforcer Aldo Trapani comes with Tom Hagen to Los Angeles and it is he who helps to place the head of Khartoum in Woltz's bed, after it has been removed by Rocco Lampone.
