A Day at the Races is a 1937 film directed by Sam Wood, starring the Marx Brothers. The movie features Dr. Hackenbush (Groucho Marx), playing the role of a charlatan horse doctor that has taken it upon himself to run a prestigious medical institution, the Standish Sanitarium. At the same time, real estate developers are trying to buy the hospital and tear it down. The sanitarium is relying on the funds of Mrs. Upjohn (Margaret Dumont) who insists on only seeing Dr. Hackenbush as her doctor. Meanwhile, Tony (Chico Marx) and Stuffy (Harpo Marx) are running scams like usual, including selling coded horse tips and the corresponding code anthologies. They are also trying to help Gil Stuart (Allan Jones) promote his racehorse, Hi-Hat, despite its lack of success at racing. Meanwhile, Dr. Hackenbush is being seduced as part of a plot to ruin the sanitarium. Tony and Stuffy are desperately and comically trying to extract him from the situation while trying to figure out how to inspire Hi-Hat and avoid the police.
