After having lost a fight he should have won because he was cheated by even his own trainer, prizefighter Scotty (Tom Tyler) decides to quit boxing & instead take up a job as farmhand. Soon, thanks to the help of weirdo Frozen Face (Sammy Cohen), he hires on at Colonel Hayden's (John Elliott) ranch ... & falls out with his lovely daughter Betty Rose (Beth Marion) pretty much in one go (however, eventually they would fall in love). And he earns the respect of everybody when he manages to break Blue Belle, a very temperamental horse that would make good racehorse material could anybody ride it - & Colonel Hayden has promised the horse to the one who can break it.

Hayden's foreman Bones Kennedy (Charles King) is less than impressed because he had also set eyes on the horse, so from now on he seizes every opportunity to get into a fight with Scotty.

But this is not Scotty's biggest problem, he soon also finds sports promoter & gambler Lew Slater (Forrest Taylor) to lurk around the ranch, exactly the man who was instrumental in his downfall as a boxer, & lew persuads the colonel to a couple of bets (both in horse races & in boxing) he has previously fixed, then sees to it that Scotty is fired ... which already almost wins one bet for him, as the Colonel had a bet on Blue Belle in the enxt days ... & if Scotty, the owner & the only one who could ride Blue Belle, doesn't show up ...

Of course, Betty Rose can ultimately persuade Scotty to ride despite everything, & wouldn't you know it, he wins too, even if Lew Slater did try to have him assassinated.

Once Scotty has crossed the finish line though, the sheriff arrests him (another of Lew's tricks), & the Colonel, encouraged by his win at the races, bets double or nothing with Lew slater on tonight's fight ... not knowing of course that Lew has already fixed the fight ... but fortunately, Frozen Face - crossdressing for the job - has sprung Scotty just in time so he can take the place of the prospected loser of the fight, win the fight for the Colonel, & consequently win the heart of Betty Rose.


Not a great film, but the inclusion of horse racing & boxing in a standard Western plot make this one of the more colourful B-Western of the 1930's.
