Pomata, Felice and Mandrake are bonded together by their passion for horsebetting to which they dedicate all their time and energy. Rosetta, Mandrake's fiancèe, tired of waiting for him to propose, seeks the advice of a fortune-teller who foresees her marriage if she bets on a certain horse. Rosetta entrusts Mandrake with the money for the betting, but he, along with his two friends, bets on a horse of their choice and loses. Mandrake is offered a shady deal; to substitute a famous jockey, his look-alike, thus favouring Soldatino, another horse. Through a series of comical circumstances Mandrake wins a race he should not have won. After more adventures Mandrake marries Rosetta, but on the night of their honeymoon Mandrake takes off with his friends to the Grand Prix, his real passion.
