Storyline

Tom Harrigan raises orphaned Benny McNeil to be a first-rate jockey, but fails to bridle the lad's healthy ego. When Benny receives too many rebukes for unsportsman-like conduct from the racing commission, Tom decides to sell his contract to Garnet before he, too, is censured. Tom also reasons that, by having Benny with a top outfit, he can manipulate his races and make a fortune on the betting. But Benny, thanks to the humanizing influence of Mr. Garnet, has a different idea.... Written by Chris Stone <jstone@bellatlantic.net>

Death scene is so bad i cant believe they made movies like this..
2 May 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Talking one second and dead the next, come on....Were people this bad of actors back then?? I guess standards were very low back in the day..This movie could have been good. Horse racing was in its hey day back then and they still produce this garbage? I love horse racing so i forced myself to watch this on TCM and it is really unbelievable how terrible how the actors come off. Expectations must have been extremely low in the 40's.. I know times change but the whole thing and the ending were half azz at best. I hope this movie didn't make much money, or if it did i now know why senor citizens think the way they do about todays movies if this is what they are used to..
