A professional gambler, Joe Grange (Don Ameche), lets his obsession nearly ruin his life. Seeing a chance to make some big dough, Joe buys a sickly colt, nurses it back to health, and then trains it until it promises to win big at the track. Placing a small fortune on the horse's head, Joe

wins a bundle, but the money doesn't please his wife, Ronnie (Catherine McLeod), who feels Joe has ignored his duties as a husband (he was playing cards while she was giving birth) and father (he skipped a Christmas party to gamble). She leaves him, and his luck ends. In the end he is left with

nothing but his horse. Seeking to win just one more big bet, Joe takes the nag out of retirement and runs him. Heavy on the melodramatics, but the race footage is more realistic than usual.
