Even though Ruth Fulton (Miriam Cooper) has been raised around horses and horse racing, she is a very naive young girl. It is only by luck that she manages to evade the grasp of more questionable men and wind up with John Carroll (Vincent Coleman), a nice Southern boy. But John is scarred by the fact that his mother (Beatrice Beckley) has a past and was harshly judged by his father. He has forgiven her (women with "pasts" needed to be "forgiven" in those days), but when there's talk about Ruth, he can't forgive that and stops seeing her. Ruth, however, discovers a plot to bankrupt her estranged sweetheart and saves him from financial ruin by taking the reins of his horse in a race and riding it to victory. After that, John learns to forgive. Miriam Cooper was the wife of the picture's director, Raoul Walsh.
