Business Skill vs Horse Sense

My papa was a preacher during all the time I was at home, but as a teenager he rode a horse to high school in Canfield, Ohio and tied it in the school stables while he was in his school classes. He grew up on a farm and probably knew animals better than people. Years later, he would often comment that this person or that person didn't even have horse sense. He said that a good horse always did the right thing and always knew the way home from anywhere he was . . . unlike a lot of people. In this horse racing adventure businessman Hammond, played by Ernest Hilliard, is wealthy and likes to race the horses . . . and if he cannot win at the racetrack with his horse, he figured it was good business to try to pay off the faster horses, and if that didn't work he would drug the champion runner so that his horse could win. Dan Morgan, played by William Boyd, owns the fastest horse, and he has enough horse sense to turn what looks like disaster into victory. When his champion race horse is disqualified because of being doped, Morgan is also banned from racing for a year. Wealthy businessman Hammond now has the fastest horse at the track and his only real competition has been banned from racing. Morgan should give up and go into another business, but he only knows and loves horses, so he stakes a young boy to a horse that is about to be shot because it has lame feet that will not heal, and goes home with the boy to the boy's 'Hardly Able Stable,' named so because the boy and his big sister were hardly able to pay the bills each month. With his horse sense Morgan learns how to train the race horse facing death at the same time as healing his bad feet - Something that was considered impossible by every horse expert in the world. With a healed racer he enters the big race again going head-to-head against businessman Hammond and Hammond once again wins the race . . . By burning down the race track stable the night before the race . . . But remember that Morgan has horse sense, and with a little sugar for the horses he pulls victory from the hooves of defeat. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
