Storyline

Osborn, the trainer, is asked by an old friend to complete the training of his nephew, Jim Blackwood, and as time goes on Jim, steady and hard working, finds himself very happy in the home of his uncle's friend, graced by the presence of the trainer's pretty daughter, Kitty. A lucky accident gives the young fellow his first chance and his career opens with very bright prospects. He is overjoyed when some months later he is given a chance to ride Sunbeam, the favorite in a forthcoming big race, but pitfalls are in his path, and Jim finally succumbs to the temptation of a bribe offered by Sam Marsh, a race track crook, to destroy all chances of Sunbeam winning. Kitty, however, who has been by accident or design close at hand, overhears the agreement, and, dauntless and prompt in action, she resolves to save Jim's honor and changes the horses in their stalls, so that when Jim comes to dope Sunbeam he operates, unknowingly, upon another horse. The great day arrives. Everyone is out to see... Written by Moving Picture World synopsis
