Gabe Fenway, a sharecropper for local landlord Preston, plans to run his quarterhorse Sapphire in a local horse race. Mark also plans to race his horse, Blueboy, in the race. Preston, who wants to keep all of Fenway's crops, believes Mark's horse can beat Fenway's and tricks Fenway into betting his crop against Preston's $1000 that Mark will win. And to make sure that Mark wins, Preston has a plan to make sure that Fenway doesn't make it to the race. Written by
