The three day race meeting and gymkhana is held near the banks of a creek on the boundary of Landor and Mount James stations, some 1000 kilometres north west of Perth.

The book tells of exciting race stories, of champion horses and well-bred sires. Humorous anecdotes describe hi-jinks and fun at the traditional yearly get-togethers, and the spirit of togetherness runs through the whole story.
