EDITORIAL REVIEW : Billy Walton and his father make a decent living by breaking and selling wild horses. Billy’s world changes suddenly when his father is killed and hooligans run him off his ranch. Swearing revenge, Billy sets off for town in search of his uncle Joe, who he believes will help him regain his ranch. Joe, however, is gunning for Matt Daggett, a short- tempered gambler. Joe takes a shot at Daggett, but Billy, who is talking to Daggett, takes the bullet. Daggett kills Joe, takes Billy under his care and nurses him back to health. He also employs Billy to train Blue Chip his prize quarter horse that he wants to enter in a big race. Billy is thrilled with the job, quite unaware of the fact that Daggett has other plans - to rig the race and place heavy odds on another horse.
Daggett sends Billy to live on a neighboring ranch with John Grant who gets mixed up with Daggett’s henchman Red Roper in a stagecoach robbery and killing. While on the ranch Billy meets Jerri Marshall (Dolores Prest), daughter of Bob Marshall (Leif Erickson), who lost "Blue Chip" to Daggett in a crooked gambling deal. Billy runs Roper off the ranch when he tries to molest Kate Daggett. Neither Roper nor Billy knows that the gun in Billy’s hand is empty. News spreads and Billy is an overnight hero.
Roper is arrested for the stagecoach robbery and shootout. He promptly implicates Grant in the crime. Fearing that Roper would spill the beans on his links with the outlaw outfit, Daggett hires men to break into the jail and lynch both Roper and Grant. Roper is killed but Billy rescues Grant.
Race day arrives and Daggett distracts Billy enough to cripple Blue Chip who completes the race and wins despite the injury. Furious at loosing his money, Daggett attempts to shoot Blue chip claiming that the horse was lame. Marshal intervenes and is shot.
It doesn’t take Billy long to detect the wire tied to Blue Chips fetlock and to realize that it was his employer who was responsible for his father’s death and Grants hanging. When an angry Billy confronts Daggett in the saloon, Daggett tries to kill him. It is now Grant’s turn to save Billy. He kills Daggett but cannot save himself.
