Tom Harrigan raises orphaned Benny McNeil to be a first-rate jockey, but fails to bridle the lad's healthy ego. When Benny receives too many rebukes for unsportsmanlike conduct from the racing commission, Tom decides to sell his contract to Garnet before he, too, is censured. Tom also reasons that, by having Benny with a top outfit, he can manipulate his races and make a fortune on the betting. But Benny, thanks to the humanizing influence of Mr. Garnet, has a different idea....
