A working title for this film was Horseflesh. The New York Times review notes that Vice-President Charles Curtis appeared in the background in a racing scene. Modern sources credit William Gray as the film editor. According to an onscreen acknowledgment, the farm scenes were filmed "on location in the blue grass [country] of Lexington and Hopkinsville, Kentucky." Recognition is also given to the Elmendorf, Greentree, Dixiana and Elmsdale Stock Farms for their cooperation. The Variety review of the film notes that scenes of the races at Latonia and Churchill Downs were taken from newsreel footage. A modern source incorrectly claims that M-G-M's 1940 film Sporting Blood (see below) was based on the same source.
