Corn Cob Kelly (Marvin Stephens) is a young jockey whose ambition is dwarfed only by his ego. All set to ride in his first big race, Kelly is replaced at the last minute by a more experienced jockey. After eating several slices of humble pie, our hero manages to requalify for the contest, squashing the plans of a gang of race-fixing gamblers in the process. Throughout the story, Kelly is encouraged to persevere by crusty stable trainer Duke (Eugene Pallette) and by Ellen Martin (Rita Quigley), daughter of a wealthy horse owner (Dorothy Peterson). Future TV star Mary Healy makes a brief appearance as a nightclub entertainer.
