The Roxy Theatre in New York billed this film as At the Race Track with Charlie Chan. Variety reviewed the film as Chan at Race Track. According to Motion Picture Herald and Liberty, some scenes in the film were shot at the Santa Anita Racetrack in Arcadia, CA, and the film contained footage of "some of the most spectacular events of the recent racing season." Motion Picture Herald also notes that the film "has a semi-topical significance in as much as a great Antipodean horse, Pharlap, brought to this country a few years ago [from Australia], died under circumstances that have never been fully explained." Liberty notes that technical director Monroe Liebgold had been a jockey for the well-known horse breeder H. P. Whitney. Hollywood Reporter production charts lists Neil Fitzgerald and John Mooney as additional actors; their participation in the final film has not been confirmed.
