Gifted stable hand Kevin Kehoe's corpse is found floating in the pool of ex-employer Patricia Dixon's second home, electrocuted by vacuum cleaner. Jim keeps compromising his budding love affair with nurse Callie Cargill, whose experience as former horse ranch girl proves useful, to close in on ranch owner Patricia, major colleague Wallace Dosher, some of their staff and vet William Meadows, who were all involved in dirty horse race tricks providing plausible motives to kill brilliant but greedy Kevin, who also had debts.

The Dosher Ranch auction was shot at Hialeah Park Race Track in Hialeah, Florida. The "Pine Hollow Riding School" in Parkland, Florida was used for The Glades Ranch where Callie and Darcey reunited. Most of the handlers and riders were from the school and performed their regular duties in the shoot. The Pompano Beach mansion where the victim was found in the pool is actually a 15,000 sq. ft. mansion in Ft. Lauderdale, FL. See more
At the end, when Callie jumpstarts Jim's car, she refuses to let him do it, saying that he'll mess it up, then promptly does so herself, in two ways. She connects both cables to one battery before connecting either to the other, which can lead to a short-circuit if the other ends of both cables connect and is very unsafe, and then she allows Jim to attempt to start his car while her own is not running, which is a very good way to drain her car's battery.
