Lona Farrell, a Hungarian woman, is much desired by many men for both her money and her charms. Singing cowboy Roy Dexter arrives at her ranch and, at first, refuses to work for a woman. It is only when he sees her prize horse - Arizona Lady - that he agrees to become her employee. He is enthralled with both the horse and Lona, and she, against her will, falls for Roy. The sheriff, who is backing another horse in the local rodeo race, makes a bet with Lona that if Arizona Lady loses, she will marry him. Not long after, Arizona Lady is missing and Roy, the newcomer, is promptly thrown in jail….. Act II takes place at the Kentucky Derby.
