Danny Duncan, racing trainer, is badly injured by a horse, The Lord Mayor. His youngest son, Andrew, loves the horse. Disaster, never far away from the stables, looks as if it will overwhelm the family this time, but Graham, the eldest son, leaves his publishing career and comes back to help, and in the end The Lord Mayor’s talent, stubbornly kept under wraps by the horse, is allowed to flourish.
