How could a lad with a name like Denny Nolan fail to be a successful jockey? Well, he couldn't, of course, but there was many a day before our Denny Nolan had his wish.
Colonel Randall, his beloved foster-father, had given him the fine two-year-old, En¬deavor, to raise, and train and Denny felt in his bones here was a racer to be proud of—a racer he was going to ride. Jeff Sutherland, who was charming, unreliable, but kindly and lovable all the same, saw Endeavor's potentialities, too. Jeff had become Denny's idol and the Colonel consented reluctantly to let Denny go out on the racing circuit as Jeff's jockey, riding Endeavor.
There were many heartaches for the serious-minded Denny, not the least of which was the loss of Endeavor as one of Jeff's many debts. There were compensations too, as when the Colonel redeemed the two-year-old for Denny and best of all, the day of the great Cavanaugh race when he rides his beautiful horse to victory.
A thrilling story perfectly told.
