Romeo and Juliet meets the Kentucky Derby in this cheesy tale of hoss breedin' folk. Sweet-hearts Greene and Young come from families who've been feuding since the Civil War, but he runs off, assumes a false identity and prepares his beloved's mount for victory in the big race. It's not exactly unpredictable, but Ernest Palmer and Ray Rennahan's colour camerawork displays the possibilities of the then experimental Technicolor process a year before the milestones of Gone With the Wind and The Wizard of Oz.
