Synopsis by Hal Erickson

The French comedy team of Drean and Pauley stars in the racetrack comedy Les as du Turf (Aces of the Turf). The boys play a pair of dimwitted gamblers who impulsively bet on a long shot, thereby winning a huge sum of money. They decide to continue pressing their luck by buying the selfsame longshot, a broken-down nag with dim prospects. This being a movie instead of real life, the horse manages to win the climactic Big Race, and everybody lives happier ever after. Filmed in 1931, Les as Du Turf didn't make it to the U.S. until 1935.
