Also known as CHIMMIE HICKS AT THE RACES, comedian Charley Grapewin plays the character who is at the races cheering on a bet he just made. The style of this picture is that Crapewin is on an empty stage and we just see him acting out like he's cheering on a horse and the aftermath of the race. I thought this gimmick was somewhat unique and certainly different from some of the acts from this period. With that said, while the actor does a fine job at acting this out, there's really nothing too funny about it. It's interesting to note that the IMDb lists Crapewin playing this character twice in 1900 and then there aren't any more credits until 1929 but then he acted for the next couple decades.
