Working titles of this film were Win, Place and Show and Straight, Place, Show. The onscreen title cards read: "Monogram Pictures Corporation presents Leo Gorcey and The Bowery Boys Crazy Over Horses." As noted in a June 21, 1951 Hollywood Reporter news item, Crazy Over Horses was producer Ben Schwalb's first Bowery Boys series film. Schwalb took over for January Grippo, who produced many of the Bowery Boys series in the 1940s. Only Tim Ryan is credited onscreen as the film's screenwriter; however, the Variety review and a revised SAB, contained in the film's file at the AMPAS Library, list Max Adams as Ryan's co-writer.
