Storyline

Plot Summary

Jessica visits horse trainer Matt Cleveland on Wally Hampton's stud ranch in Virginia's Blue Mountains, where everybody is elated about the prospects for their promising racehorse Swift Prince. Matt is clobbered down and Jessica finds a mysterious syringe, but it's a stimulant injected in Prince, three days before a major race, so unlikely still to be detected even if it makes him win. Meanwhile Catherine Noble's neighboring ranch is financially troubled, so daughter Tracey Noble can't get a grand wedding, and their partner, Lloyd Mentone, schemes with the Hamptons assistant trainer -who is fired by Matt- while insisting Prince shouldn't race with a not perfectly healed injury as his leg could be permanently hurt. Matt tells Jessica a video cassette he just received could help take 3 seconds off Prince's time, and shortly after has a fatal car accident, or is it murder? Now rancher son Paul Hampton, a banker, pulls the plug at his deal with Loyd, and calls off the wedding with Tracy 'which was only a match between stud ranches'. Jessica now solves the horse mystery and Matt's murder. Written by KGF Vissers
