Description

On Derby Day, 1893, at Chicago's Washington Park racetrack, Jack Preston first encounters Checkers, a down-and-out tout whose hot tip on the third race costs the novice a total of $35, and marks the beginning of a strange friendship. Although a warm, kindly, truthful chap with an over-abundance of generosity and pride in his make-up, Checkers is a born loser whose life is a study in bad luck, poor judgment, and adversity. In an attempt to help him, Preston becomes friend, counselor, and financial guardian for the hapless youth, until, his spirits buoyed by promises of a brighter future, Checkers decides to try his luck again in a world hostile to him. Checkers is a brilliant character study. Henry Martyn Blossom was a playwright and lyricist.
