Steven Scott, a successful inventor of mechanical toys, gives the sack to the trainer of his hurdler Energize. In public Scott is seen as an ungrateful owner uncaring about the little man. The non-public reason for the sacking is that the trainer has been systematically fleecing Steven for years. But the trainer does not go gently into the good night & Steven must enlist new allies in an attempt to recover his horse and honor.
