Description by OLDIES.com:
This horse-racing tale marks the first of eight screen pairings (plus two variety-act films) of Hollywood legends Mickey Rooney and Judy Garland. Rooney plays a swell-headed top jockey pressured by his disreputable pop to throw a race so that the ol' man can cash in at the window. Garland is a singing cutie who knows her way around the paddock because she lives at a boarding house for jockeys run by her aunt (a delightful Sophie Tucker). Ronald Sinclair plays the aristocratic English lad who owns a prized racehorse and wants Rooney to take the reins in the big race. Young dreams saddle up and ride with this sweet saga from a more innocent time.
A jockey involved in crooked deals becomes involved with a well-bred young girl.
Set in the milieu of horseracing, this film centers on the travails of honest, skilled jockey Timmie Donovan. Thanks to his manipulative, gambling father, Timmie throws a race, and is barred from the track as a result. Things worsen when the owner of the horse Timmie rode dies, making the jockey feel very guilty. Timmie sets out to redeem both himself and the man's family -- a task much easier said than done...
- The first film to team Mickey Rooney and Judy Garland.
