As someone who has grown up around horses and horse racing, I love horse movies.  Some movies seem like they are made specifically for you.  Let It Ride was one of them.  I have worked as a Mutuel Teller for more than a decade, and also went to the track from the movie a lot as a kid.  Nothing makes me laugh like this movie, but I do realize some of it is just flat-out impossible.  For example The main character walking all over the back side, or going or time to go to a bar that isn`t located on the track premises, talk to people, bet and then go watch the race.  Your average races race about 25 minutes apart, sometimes longer sometimes shorter depending on a number of things.    Makes me wish they had more of these type of humorous horse racing movies!
