Storyline

Brother and sister "Boots" Warren and Phyllis Warren inherit two race horses. One of the horses is claimed by a rival horse-owner, Jeff Stuart, when it wins a claiming race at Santa Anita. Then Stuart learns that the horse will not run without its former stablemate. But neither Stuart nor the Warrens want to give up their respective horses. It is finally agreed that both horses will be entered in the same race, and the winning owner will gain possession of both horses. The only complication is that Phyllis has fallen in love with Stuart. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

A typical hayburner from the stable of Sam Katzman.

Brother and sister "Boots" Warren (Stanley Clements)and Phyllis Warren (Gloria Henry) inherit two race horses. One of the horses is claimed by a rival horse-owner, Jeff Stuart (David Bruce), when it wins a claiming race at Santa Anita. Then Stuart learns that the horse will not run without its former stablemate. But neither Stuart nor the Warrens want to give up their respective horses.

It is finally agreed that both horses will be entered in the same race, and the winning owner will gain possession of both horses. (It is a foregone conclusion that one of them will win, because this is a Sam Katzman movie, and there is no room in the plot for an outside entry to slip in and win and send the writers back to the drawing board.) The only complication is that Phyllis has gotten a case of the sweets on Stuart, and that is a stretch as Gloria Henry could do better then hooking up with the always-dull David Bruce.
