In this Bowery Boys comedy we have little Louie Dumbrowsky (Bernard Gorcey) looking to collect an outstanding debt from a down-on-his-luck stable owner, so Slip and Sach (Leo Gorcey/Huntz Hall) arrange a meeting to make the pickup for him. When the boys meet the man, he makes them an offer to take "My Girl" as settlement instead of cash. At first the boys think My Girl is the man's attractive daughter, but quickly realize it's a horse. Louie is none too pleased when they return, but it turns out that this animal is a class A race horse, and it isn't long before a group of crooked gamblers try to get their greedy hands on her. The plot is typical silly comedy fodder, and a lot of running time milks the same gag of mistaking one horse for another, but it's zany enough to make this a moderate pleaser for Bowery Boys fans. **1/2 out of ****
