In this drama, an early talky, a horse race determines a woman's romantic fate. The trouble begins when she finds herself falling deeply in love with a handsome songwriter. Unfortunately, she is already betrothed to a real cad. When her fiance finds out that she loves another, he decides to frame the conductor for a crime. When she finds about the crime, the girl believes him and her heart breaks. In hopes of being able to gracefully break off the engagement she makes a deal with her fiance: if her horse (whom she thinks is a sure thing) loses the Kentucky Derby, she will become his unwilling bride. Unfortunately, the horse does indeed lose and the woman must honor her bet. Fortunately, just before her wedding day she attends a concert and who should be conducting but her true love. Realizing that the conductor is innocent and romantic bliss ensues.
