Although this Drury Lane-style melodrama was shot in Australia, and had scenery to match, its American distributors retitled it to make its location Lexington, KT -- a ruse that fooled no one. Other than the unusual backgrounds, it's the typical horseracing tale -- the tomboyish Bobbie Morton (Brownie Vernon) is a favorite around the racing stables belonging to her father (John Faulkner). Her brother Dick (Robert MacKinnon) isn't so popular, however -- he spends his time in the company of a Sydney crook. Bobbie's adoring, but much older neighbor, Dennis O'Hara (John Cosgrove) gives her a horse, Alert, for her birthday, along with helping out her ne'er-do-well brother. Alert is entered in the big race, but Dick's associate plots to kill the horse. The rest is familiar terrain -- Dick discovers the scheme and informs his sister, who takes the place of the crooked jockey and wins the race. O'Hara realizes that Bobbie would be better off with someone closer to her own age, and gives her up.
