Lon McCallister is the Boy From Indiana in this pleasant horse-racing yarn. Lon Decker (McCallister) comes to the rescue of Texas Dandy, a champion quarter-mile racehorse who is being abused by his avaricious owner (George Cleveland). After various and sundry adventures--including a hair-raising episode with a wild bull--Decker rides Texas Dandy in a crucial, plot-solving Big Race. Lois Butler co-stars as the girl in Lon's life, while Billie Burke goes through her dithery repertoire as a high-society horse fancier. As can be expected, Boy From Indiana is at its best during the racetrack scenes.
