Synopsis by Hans J. Wollstein
Played mainly for laughs, this silent Western features Tom Mix as a rancher who goes to Washington (not unlike the later Mr. Smith) to affect better conditions for the anonymous man of the soil. Having lost his money to some scheming lobbyists, Mix, unaware that oil has been found on his property, stakes his possessions on wonder horse Tony winning the big race. The horse does just that, and everything is satisfactorily cleared up by the fade-out. Directed by the capable John G. Blystone and scripted by Donald W. Lee, Oh, You Tony! was long thought to be lost in the big 1937 Fox fire but, happily, a print was later located in the former Czechoslovakia.
