An owner of racehorses, Dan Thomas, and his trainer Duke Martin discover a young fellow called "Corn Cob" Kelly on their way west. He has a natural way with horses, so they quickly teach him to become a jockey.

As his career begins, Corn Cob befriends a fellow rider, Skeeziks O'Day, and antagonizes another, Tuffy Graves, whose rough tactics cause Corn Cob to fall from a mount and suffer a broken shoulder. While recuperating, he gets word that Dan has conspired with gangsters to fix a race. Knowing that honest trainer Bob Martin and daughter Ellen have all their money riding on the race, Corn Cob decides to ride their horse, injured shoulder notwithstanding. He wins the race, putting Dan in hot water with the crooks.
