A very enjoyable old film, and the topic is perfect now between the Preakness and the Belmont races.
17 May 2004 | by (Pittsburgh, PA) – See all my reviews

The story has some important lessons in it that are not put forth in today's movies. The movie has a wholesome story line that is so much a part of the past as compared to the 'whatever feels good' examples that are shown to our young people today.

Robert Montgomery is best remembered for his role in the "Father Knows Best" sitcom and this much younger version of him is great fun to watch.

The musical theme is very familiar and if anyone knows the name of it, I would like to hear from them. I recently heard the same theme in another film, also a horse race movie, but do not remember the title. Perhaps the music has something to do with the state of Virginia.
