"Nails" Morgan and his buddy Todd Harrington are following the racing from track-to-track across the country when Morgan suddenly finds himself "adopted" by a six-year-old orphan, Janet Smith. Janet has run away from an orphanage in search of a dream-father and Morgan meets her requirements. In the things she says and does, the superstitious Morgan finds betting hunches that pay off. After sneaking her back to the orphanage, he decides she is his meal-ticket and kidnaps her. Not knowing the circumstances, an Irish cop forces Morgan to marry his sweetheart, Madge Perry, in order to give Janet a legitimate father. Following the race season to the California tracks they acquire ownership of a horse, a big bankroll...and some misfortune in the form of a federal court-trial as kidnappers of the child.Written by

I can only say that I feel that the little girl won my heart, especially when she sat on the judges bench; she was so lovely.
Little Miss Throughbred was a delightful surprise I found one late night. The performances were great; especially those of little Miss Chapman, and the cop. The little girl was incredibly beautiful, and just as great an actress, without seeming like a prima donna. I was completely taken in by the predictable plot because of the whit, charm, and superb acting of Ann Sheridan, the cop, and by that tiny angelic face of the little girl. I would like to see the movie again, and again. I would like to share it with my family and friends. It would be so wonderful if real life chance meeting turned out as well for children. If there are other movies in which little Janet Chapman acted, I would like to view those as well. Or, if she starred in movies later as an adult I would like to know of those too. It did not matter a bit to me that the plot was predictable, I was carried blissfully along, enjoying every bit of the ride. Thank you, Nomie
