Synopsis by Eleanor Mannikka
In this drama, Barney Ingram (Mickey Rooney) is a gambler who's lost his money, only to discover his favorite horse Lightning has been stolen. A young woman with severe vision problems named Stephanie (Isabel Lorca) is the only one able to ride Lightning to a sure victory. A group of tough-talking gangsters have taken the horse but suggest some kind of a deal can be cut. If Stephanie, with the help of a feisty and sharp stable owner (Susan George), can manage to pull off a victory in an upcoming horse race, she will be able to get the money for the surgery that could restore her sight, with plenty left over for everyone else.
