Based on the cartoon comics of Fatty Finn and His gang , this rare Australian production is brought to life by plenty of talented child actors. Fatty Finn dreams of being a speed demon and agrees to face Bruiser Murphy in The Kid Stakes races and so bets his prized goat Hector on the outcome. Murphy isn't playing fair however and sends his cronies to make sure he wins no matter what. Lots of laughs and a genuine goat race!

69 minutes with a music score by David Knudtson
