Though heavy on plot, this is a solid Autry Western. Gene's trying to help injured jockey (Johnny Duncan) regain his confidence and neighbor (Peggy Stewart) recover her sweepstakes horse. Action takes place in and around Lone Pine, CA, with scenic Mt. Whitney as a backdrop. Photography is especially good with several striking background scenes and few phony process shots or cheaper LA locations. No gun-play or even much hard-riding, but enough action to keep fans happy. Acting is better than average, especially Duncan who makes a convincing discouraged jockey, and Stewart who looks like she was born to be a horse rider. Hollway's comic-relief is a matter of taste and should have been swapped here for the Commdore's (Dorothy Vaughan's) more prickly, less cartoonish, style. Nonetheless, the musical numbers are well staged, especially the closing title song, along with a neat little twist ending. All in all, a rather easy-going entry with a villain (Tris Coffin) who is more ornery than evil.
