Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Produced, directed and cowritten by former child star Wesley Barry, Racing Blood was distributed in the US by 20th Century-Fox. Jimmy Boyd, a juvenile singer who'd risen to fame with the hit single "I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus", stars as a sensitive stable boy. When a colt is born with a split hoof, its owner decides to destroy it. The animal is rescued by young Boyd, who nurses the colt to health and trains the animal as a racer. Inevitably, the horse is entered in a crucial competition--opposite its own brother, a proven champion. Bill Williams, George Cleveland, Jean Porter and John Eldredge costar in this amiable equestrian yarn.
