When equestrian Linda (Vera Miles) talks her trainer, Jim (Lloyd Bridges), into taking care of Gypsy Prince, her horse, Jim decides to enter the steed in an upcoming race. Tragically, the horse falls mid-race and breaks a leg. Though prospects look bleak, Linda (Miles) refuses to give up on her horse, and will not allow the animal to be destroyed. Rather, she chooses to focus on physical therapy and personal faith. Her loyalty is rewarded tenfold when Gypsy Prince, successfully retrained, makes a killing a the track. Directed by William Beaudine, Pride of the Bluegrass is based on a story by Harold Shumate, and also features Margaret Sheridan, Arthur Shields, and Michael Chapin.
