Description by

Unemployed jockey Tod Taylor gets a huge break when he is hired by Matt Riley. Within weeks Taylor is riding Riley's horses to a string of victories. Success and the limelight go right to the jockey's head. Big-time gambler Tom Drake hires a blonde sexpot to seduce Tod and introduce him to the roulette wheel. Showing off, he starts playing for stakes way over his head. With Drake holding a huge note that Tod can't possibly pay off, he delivers an ultimatum - lose the big race tomorrow or a police detective will be waiting at the finish line to arrest him for passing bad checks.

Pretty Nancy Dover (later billed as Judith Barrett) is known for her roles in Cimarron (1931), Yellowstone (1936), and Road To Singapore (1940). Wesley E. Barry is best remembered for directing Creation Of The Humanoids (1962). Richard Thorpe was a Hollywood journeyman directing over 180 films, most notably Three Little Words (1950), Vengeance Valley (1951), Ivanhoe (1952) and Jailhouse Rock (1957).
