Kerry’s grandfather promised the filly he bred, Steamboat, would one day win the Grand National, but grandfather died, the horses were sold, and Kerry was sent to live with her uncle. She was absolutely determined to track Steamboat down, and have her trained to win the National. Although she does track the filly down, she is a ringer for another, far less talented horse, and even though Kerry manages to get the filly, the people who have her do not give up their nefarious intentions.
