| The show must go on, the big race must not be stopped
Poverty Row Conn Pictures put out this cheaply made independent race track film. It concerns two brothers and a sister, James Eagles, Frankie Darro and Gladys Blake all connected with the Sport of Kings. Blake is involved with Kane Richmond. Eagles is a jockey that gamblers frame because he wouldn't throw a race.

Meanwhile Darro develops a race horse with the prophetically name Trouble who looks like a winner. But like in the TV Fury series he will only let Darro ride him.

Those same gamblers now target both the horse and Darro. In the end Darro pulls off a rather stupid and potentially lethal stunt at the big race.

This one was shot on jump change with lots of racetrack footage to beef it up. Arthur Houseman as the perpetually soused gangster henchman is the highlight of the film.
