"Nails" Morgan and his buddy Todd Harrington are following the racing from track-to-track across the country when Morgan suddenly finds himself "adopted" by a six-year-old orphan, Janet Smith. Janet has run away from an orphanage in search of a dream-father and Morgan meets her requirements. In the things she says and does, the superstitious Morgan finds betting hunches that pay off. After sneaking her back to the orphanage, he decides she is his meal-ticket and kidnaps her. Not knowing the circumstances, an Irish cop forces Morgan to marry his sweetheart, Madge Perry, in order to give Janet a legitimate father. Following the race season to the California tracks they acquire ownership of a horse, a big bankroll...and some misfortune in the form of a federal court-trial as kidnappers of the child. Written by

Little Miss Thoroughbred is a nice little film with an absolutely adorable performance by Janet Chapman (qv) as the title character.
Movies with children this young run the risk of being too cutesy, but to her credit little Miss Chapman keeps her performance on the positive side.
This movie was on my to-watch list because of Ann Sheridan (qv) and, as usual, she doesn't disappoint. As talented as she is beautiful, Miss Sheridan makes any movie worth watching and she does a nice job working with Miss Chapman.
If you don't mind the whole using-a-kid-to-win-at-the-races angle, then I'm sure you'll find this movie Thoroughly enjoyable. (Pun intended :-)
