This British horse racing saga stars Bill Owen as Sam Lilley, an ex-champion jockey banned from the track for an indiscretion. Trying to relive his former glory vicariously through the exploits of his young protege, Georgie Crain (Fella Edmonds), Sam vows that the kid will never let his

Raymond Glendenning and Gordon Richards.
