Little Johnny Jones is a jockey who is in love with his all-American sweetheart, Mary Baker, and also his career as the rider of thoroughbred horses. But he almost loses both when he is tricked by a showgirl, Vivian Dale. His story of vindication swings from the racetracks of America to England and the historical National Derby, with plenty of red-white-and-blue bunting waving behind the little patriot.

They're off! To the fastest action drama you've ever heard. With Eddie Buzzell, the personality Kid in the lead. Singing and riding his way into your heart. Loving in a way that will make your heart beats sound like hoofbeats! (Print Ad- Sheffield Observer, ((Sheffield, Penna.)) 30 January 1930)
