A professional triangle with some personal twists thrown in is presented. Bandleader Tod Weaver has a successful New York career with Gale Starr, his girl, his lead female vocalist - Tod being the lead male vocalist - performing urbane classy melodically driven songs, expertly arranged by Mel Lynch, in upscale uptown clubs. Tod and Mel have a falling out, partly because of Mel's interest in Gale professionally and personally, with neither backing down from their principled positions of Tod not wanting anything to do with Mel ever again, and Mel wanting to ruin Tod. Gale somewhat sides with Mel if only for the survival of her own career, which leads to Gale taking over Tod's band at their latest gig at the Sky Terrace, and Tod being blacklisted by uptown clubs and the bandleaders' association. But with Tod goes his faithful manager Remorse Rumson and publicist Scoop Trotter, whose professional lives are also at stake. The three have different perspectives of how to get Tod on his feet again. They collectively have to decide whether to take the risk of a different direction spurred by an idea by Camille Casey, one of Remorse's hangers-on who he thought was only going to be a casual one-nighter. Those changes include featuring an all female band, and not playing classy uptown music but rather down and dirty downtown swing.

Jockey Snapper Sinclair has been having a hard time living down the reputation of his father, a crooked jockey. Patricia Barrington agrees to take custody of Snapper, who was sentenced to one year in the state reformatory for stealing when he was hungry. She does so out of gratitude when she recognized Snapper as the son of the man who helped make her father's stables successful. After some run-ins with the trainer, Tex Reardon, who likens humans to horses and says "like sire, like colt," Snapper prevents the sale of a fast but unruly horse called Faithful, and eventually rides him to victory in the Kentucky Derby. Using the pseudonym Fred St. Clair, Snapper has a successful career until he refuses to cooperate with gamblers, who frame him on a charge of attempting to throw a race, and he is suspended from racing in the United States for one year. He takes an offer to race for Sir Oliver Martin in London, and has a successful career there also. But Patricia brings Faithful to London for an important race in which Snapper is also riding a horse for a maharajah, who always places a bet of £1000 for his jockey. When Snapper learns that Patricia has almost been wiped out and needs to win the race to get back on her feet, he is torn between his loyalty to the maharajah and his gratitude to the one person who has shown him kindness.
