Cast & Crew
Joseph W. Girard
Major Lee Pomeroy, of an old southern family, is forced to sell his daughter's favorite racehorse to extricate himself from financial difficulties. Peggy returns home from school to find that Chain Lightning is now in the possession of Colonel Bradley, a longtime enemy of her father and a former suitor of her mother's. Pomeroy falls ill and bets his remaining funds on Chain Lightning in an impending race; meanwhile, Red Rollins, the horse's jockey, makes advances to Peggy, who repulses him but later pretends to agree to his proposition in return for his winning the race on Chain Lightning. An automobile accident allows Peggy to escape, and on the day of the race she dons the jockey's clothes and rides Chain Lightning to victory. The major recovers and is reconciled with Bradley, while Peggy becomes engaged to the colonel's nephew, Bob.
