Donald Gordon, the lazy son of Colonel Moncrief Gordon, isn't much interested in anything other than racing his father's horse. That is, until he meets pretty stableman's daughter Alice Brown. Colonel Gordon makes a ten thousand dollar bet that his prizestallion can beat a rival's thoroughbred in the Kentucky Derby, and plans on his son riding the horse to victory. While rushing to tell him the news, the Colonel discovers that Donald has eloped with Alice. Infuriated that his only heir has married a commoner's daughter, the Colonel banishes Donald from home. Looking for penance, the young man becomes a crewman on a merchant ship. But as the race approaches, the Colonel realizes his mistake and decides to call his son back. But with Donald on the ocean halfway around the world, it may be too late for him to win the Kentucky Derby.The Kentucky Derby is the first starring feature for dashing actor Reginald Denny.

He is remembered for his roles in classics like The Scarlet Letter (1911), Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (1913) and Ivanhoe (1913). Baggott's most popular work behind the camera was the William S. Hart western Tumbleweeds (1925). Big-budget fil
