In this remake of Gene Autry's 1942 "Call of the Canyon", Rex Allen, the newly-elected head of the cattleman's association, is driving the combined herds of the ranchers to the nearest railhead when he runs into trouble. The drive is stopped by Brock Stevens, whose father is a power in the meat-packing industry, and whose ownership of the railroad spur line enables him to deal ruthlessly with the local ranchers. Rex and the other ranchers are elated when Brock agrees to pay fair-market price for the cattle until they learn the exorbitant loading fees he charges will eat up their profits. The only alternative is to drive the herd to the main line railroad at Big Bow, but to do so means Brock will crack down on them for the $10,000 feed bill they owe his company. Rex starts to Tulsa to borrow the needed money, after ending a move by Hank, the lone dissenter among the ranchers and actually in league with the Stevens crowd. Brock sends his foreman, Webb, to stop Rex and his sidekick Jigg and when this fails, Brock contacts his father, Charles Stevens in Tulsa. Whens the elder Stevens learns that Rex is appealing to Kate Carney, owner of a rival packing company, he sets a plan in action to undermine Rex's appeal for a loan.

Underworld boss Frank Hoefle has evidence against him stolen, by his henchman Pinky, from the office of District Attorney Meredith, but is then stolen from Pinky, and the thief demands a ransom of $300,000 dollars for its return to Hoefle. The latter hires private detective Duncan MacLain and "Spud" Savage to follow the ransom-note demands and leave the money in a subway-station locker. Later, Eddie Miller, a pickpocket, lifts the locker key and MacLain follows him to an apartment house and overpowers Miller but not before he has sent the locker key up a dumb-waiter shaft. MacLain climbs up the shaft and finds Amy Arden with special prosecutor Paul Zarinka. He is knocked unconscious, and when he revives, Spud and Hoefle are there. Hoefle tells them to retrieve the evidence, "or else." Since he has a hard time telling the good guys from the bad guys, MacLain has a big job ahead of him. But he gets lucky and finds a 1914 newspaper story that explains all. (Most of the plot and much of the footage from this film was re-used in 1942 for Universal's "Gang Busters" serial.)

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.

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.
