The director of Riding to Fame was uncredited, but research has revealed his identity as one A. B. Barringer. Crippled heroine Gladys McConnell inherits virtually nothing but debts upon the demise of her father. The one tangible asset in the estate is a racehorse which has never won a race. Three former employees of McConnell's dad take it upon themselves to build the nag up into a winner then enter the animal in the all-important Big Race to square the girl's debts. Riding to Fame represented the final film appearance of that grand old trouper George Fawcett.
