Jim Ponder comes to town to buy horses from Fitch Tallman. Another man claims his animals are better and eventually they agree to settle the matter with a race - Jim will buy all the stock of the winner. Naturally, some folks can't leave winning to the best horse, so there's sabotage and intrigue all the way to Cheyenne and the finish line.
