Dan Morgan has the fastest horse on the track for Saturday's high-stakes race, and everyone knows it. Rival trainer Walker Hammond needs a win badly this weekend, so he pays off a jockey to secretly dope Morgan's horse, Carnation, before the race. Carnation wins by three lengths, but is disqualified when post-race testing reveals doping. The win and the purse go to Hammond, while Dan is banned from racing. Completely innocent, Dan goes on a desperate and dangerous search to find out who framed him and to clear his name.
This Winchester Pictures production stars a young handsome William Boyd. Boyd gained fame for his starring role as Hopalong Cassidy starting in 1935. He went on to reprise the part in 65 more productions in the years to follow. His star rose again in the 1950s when he shrewdly bought the rights to his Hopalong Cassidy films and marketed them to television.
