A Day at the Races, released by MGM in 1937, is a comedy film directed by Sam Wood.

At the insistence of wealthy patient Mrs. Upjohn, Judy Standish has hired Hugo Z. Hackenbush as her sanitarium’s chief of staff.  Judy hopes that by hiring him, Mrs. Upjohn will make a heft donation to the sanitarium which is in serious financial trouble.

Judy’s boyfriend Gil, an aspiring singer, takes his life savings to buy a horse instead of voice lessons, hoping a big win will help save Judy’s business.  Tony, one of the workers at the sanitarium, and Stuffy, the horse’s jockey, help Gil find ways to make money in order to keep the horse fed.

Complications pile up as Whitmore, the business manager at the sanitarium, is working for Morgan, who wants to see Judy fail.  Whitmore does his best to discredit Hackenbush so that she has to fire him.
