I only discovered this movie recently and was very excited to have found also it helped it has the gorgeous Cornel Wilde in it. Being Irish i also like Maureen O'Hara our one and only Hollywood legend of the golden days of Hollywood. Apart from 'The Queit Man' which i like but as an Irish person find it a tad patronizing of the stereotypical Irish of that age in Hollywood which unfortunately still exists to this day 'Leap Year' jumps to mind. Anyway enough said on that only to say that apart from John Wayne and John Payne. Maureen O'Hara has the same chemistry with Cornel Wilde and it comes through in this movie. Everything about this film had me hooked from the story to the shots of international and famous race courses. I recommend this to anyone who loves horses and a bit of romance inbetween.
