The Great Mike (1944)

Directed by Wallace W. Fox
My rating: 1.5 stars out of 4

Teenage pals Jimmy and Speck (Carl Alfalfa Switzer) deliver papers using a cart pulled  by a thoroughbred racehorse they inherited from an uncle. When a professional trainer and track open up nearby, they challenge the owner to a race with his champion horse, which they almost win. The trainer agrees to go in with the boys and train their horse for a career on the tracks. However, when their uncle decides to sell the horse, they have to come up with another plan. Poverty row nonsense mainly of interest to see Switzer in his post-Our Gang days.
