Famed jockey Ben Cooper (as Ronnie Watson) is in intensive care, at Memorial Hospital, after a horse-racing mishap. Believing death is near, the gasping Mr. Cooper tells his amazing story to "Chronicle" reporter Sandy Kenyon (as Tim Berryman). A flashback to his career begins with mentor jockey Walter Burke (as Sam Barry) announcing his impending retirement and marriage - to Cooper's girlfriend. Shocked, Cooper makes his name in the sport by cheating Mr. Burke out of a final racetrack win. Years later, Burke seems to enact a fantastical and terrifying revenge
