Pat recognizes him as the son of a famous jockey who rode for her father but who became involved in a racing scandal. She intercedes with the judge and has the boy committed to her custody to work in their racing stables. Because of his father’s unsavory reputation, no one has confidence in Snapper, especially after he knocks down a jockey who makes disparaging remarks. Snapper believes that ‘‘Faithful,” a horse of fine lineage but mean disposition, is the best racer of the stables. When he hears that the horse is to be sold, he and Noah, a negro stable boy (Willie Best), run him at midnight. Snapper is fired by Tex Reardon (Charles Wilson), the stable manager as a consequence. Pat gives him another chance and Snapper races “Faithful” against “Blue Boy” the stable’s hope for the Derby. ‘‘Blue Boy” is hurt so Pat lets Snapper ride “Faithful” in the Derby. The horse wins. Snapper, his last name changed to “St. Clair’? because of his father’s record, becomes a famous jockey in the year that follows. Celebrating at a night club, Snapper loses at roulette and signs an I.0.U. to the owner, who is in with a syndicate of bookmakers. To framé him at the race the next day, they give Noah tickets on another horse jn the race to deliver to snapper. An official spots the bewildered servant and hales him before the Turf Association, which suspends Snapper. Pat loses confidence in the boy and he goes to England to ride, where he wins a big reputation. Meanwhile Cliff Barrington’s business has failed and the couple have lost the estate and stables. Pat’s Aunt Julia (Virginia Brissac) buys ‘Faithful’ back for them and they come to England to enter him in the Gold Cup to recoup their losses. Snapper is to ride the Marajah’s horse in the big race but because of his devotion to Pat, he goes to Cliff and offers to ride ‘Faithful.’ When he doesn’t hear from her, he is heartbroken and agrees to ride the other horse. Before race time, he sees Pat and finds she wasn’t told of his visit. He sacrifices himself and collides with another horse so ‘Faithful’? can win. Anoher scandal ensues and Snapper, in the hospital recuperating from hi$ injuries, is barred from English tracks. But Pat, who knows that he did it because of his loyalty to her visits him. She believes now that he did nothing crooked in America and asks him to ride for her again in the States when his suspension is finished. When she kisses him goodbye, Snapper is completely happy.
