Plot

Louie is owed money by a stable-owner and sends Slip and the boys over to collect the debt. They return with a horse, My Girl, as payment. Local gangsters want the horse and switch their horse, Tarzana, for the gang's horse. They boys discover the ruse and the horses are switched several more times. In the end, Sach rides the real My Girl in a horse race, beating Tarzana and the gangsters.

Production

This was the first film that David Gorcey was credited under using his mother's maiden name, Condon. It is also the return of Bennie Bartlett to the gang.

This was also the last appearance of William Benedict in the series. Benedict's reason for leaving the series was that "I suddenly decided I had enough, and it was getting a little rough doing 'em - emotionally. There was a lot of infighting going on and I said, 'I don't need this'".
