Young Joanna Kingsford shows the same passion and strength of spirit that have made her father, the legendary Charlie Kingsford, one of Australia's greatest trainers. But torn between the conscience and the demands of his pampered socialite wife, Charlie refuses to let his daughter near the horses she loves.
Determined to prove she can succeed in a man's world, Jo begins a new life far from the glamour and excitement of Sydney's racetracks. In the quite of the English countryside she slowly begins to carve out a name for herself as a first-class trainer . . . only to find, just as her career and love start to bloom, that the past cannot be forgotten so easily and she must choose between the man she loves and her dream of following in her father's footsteps.
