Storyline

As the town prepares for the annual Wandin Valley Cup, Molly unsuccessfully tries to rally support for a protest. Kerry and Adam Burgess, two siblings bringing their promising race entry to town, break down near the Jones' farm and Brendan offers to put up their horse until the race. As the only holder of the list of starters for the race, Frank quickly becomes everyone's best friend as people try to get some inside information before the list is officially posted. Dr. Bowen diagnoses Adam with pleurisy. Adam tries to keep knowledge of the seriousness of his illness from his sister but he is soon admitted to hospital. Horrie Hopkins, one of the town's most compulsive punters, admits himself to hospital before the big race, in perfect health, believing that his death is imminent. Retired jockey Lew Cosgrove receives a last minute offer to ride in the big race.
