A complete melodrama in two scenes with an effective and exciting finale for each. The second scene shows a very realistic horse race. The scenes are laid in the jockey’s room and the stretch. A jockey is induced to sell out the race but his plan is foiled by his half-brother who is also a rider. Taylor Granville as “Crook” Chambers wins the honors of the piece. Dixie Gerard as the owner of the stable failed to play with force or power. Mechanically the horse race is witout fault.
"The Futurity Winner" by Edmund Day
A big hit.
