Can she save her family's horse stud and reputation?

When India Kilhampton is caught up in the heart–stopping excitement of the first Melbourne Cup, her mind is made up. She will breed a horse to win the coveted trophy and reunite her fractured family. Determined to make her dream a reality she advertises for a horse breeder.

Jim Mawgan arrives at Helligen Stud in the Hunter Valley to take up the position but he also has a mission: he must fulfil his father's dying wish to right past wrongs and prove his ownership of the prized stallion Jefferson.
