The Whip is a spirited racehorse with the devil's own temper and only his Jockey and his owner Diana Beverley can even lay a hand on him. As the important race at Saratoga approached the villains are scheming to keep Whip, the odds favorite, out of the race even if they have to kill or ruin lives to do so!
