In the blue-grass of Old Kentucky, with its stately mansions, formal manners, and old-world customs, is foaled the thoroughbred Pal o' Mine. Trained by his young master in the foxhunt, he develops into an entry for the Derby. He must win to save the old ancestral estate - he does, and in such a thrilling manner as only Mr. Hawkes can depict. The dark clouds of internecine strife roll over North and South. Torn between conflicting emotions Halsey Eaton and his mount enter the Ohio Cavalry. The escapades and adventures of this band of free-raiders give Pal O' Mine and Halsey their opportunity to share in the saving of the Union.
