Uncomfortable with the idea of riding a capaill uisce, Puck decides to ride her island pony, Dove, and she registers for the races, despite objections from the other riders who see a girl on the beach as bad luck. When Sean first sees Puck on the beach where she is knocked from her mount, he tells her to keep her pony off his beach, and though Puck considers withdrawing from embarrassment, her determination is reinforced after Benjamin Malvern visits to warn her that she and her brothers are about to be evicted since no one has paid on the house since her parents' deaths.

Malvern's son, Mutt, shows his ongoing contempt for Sean at the expense of the brutal loss of a colt. While on a boat, Mutt allows a capaill uisce to attack Fundamental. Fundamental is a colt that is one of Sean's charges. Although Sean tries to save Fundamental, he fails.

Sean wants to quit his job, but he cannot stand the thought of losing Corr, his beloved capaill stallion. When Sean and Puck catch a ride to town with Thomas Gratton, they talk about the race. After Puck admits how much she loves the island, Sean offers to let her ride a capaill. Since Puck wants to be sure that a capaill is more likely to win than Dove, she and Sean race. Though Sean's mare is faster, the horse jumps from the cliffs, leaving Puck as the victor.

Puck insists on riding Dove in the race.

Sean objects when he learns Mutt plans to ride Skata in the race, but Mutt is indifferent to his employee's fear that Skata will kill someone. At the bonfire where riders declare their intent to participate in the Scorpio Races, the men object to Puck's involvement, but Sean defends her courage, forcing the others to concede.

Inspired by her courage, he confronts Malvern about downloading Corr and resigns when his employer refuses. During a fierce storm, Gabe rescues his siblings from a capaill's attack and takes them to stay with the Grattons until the storm passes. The storm also causes the horses at Malvern Yard to act up. She has to face a lot of prejudice as a result of being the first female to ever try entering the races.

She's the Sally Ride of water horse racing. To make matters worse, her brother Gabe has decided to leave Thisby, and if Puck doesn't win, the family will lose their house. Meanwhile, Sean Kendrick—now all grown up—is a studly sea-horse whisperer, training his horse, Corr, for the races as he does every year.

Tensions between Sean and the stable owner's son, Mutt, have reached a new high.

Jealous of Sean's success, Mutt tries to sabotage Sean every step of the way—attempting to get him killed, trying to injure his horse, peeing in his boots, etc. The peeing in the boots part is just gross. Eventually, Sean and Puck team up to train together for the races. Along the way, Puck tries to understand why Gabe is leaving, and she grows closer to her other brother, Finn, who sells his car so they can afford food for Dove Puck's real horse who she'll be racing.

No one would sell her a water horse, and she thinks that having a real horse gives her an advantage. Sean has money problems of his own. He wants to download Corr, but Mr.

Malvern won't sell him. Finally Sean convinces Malvern to sell him Corr if he wins the races one more year. On race day, Mutt Malvern makes his last move. Knowing Sean has the hots for Puck they've been smooching ever since Sean went to Puck's for dinner , he gets his scary horse, Skata, to attack Dove. Sean intervenes, driving Malvern into the sea, never to be seen again.

Puck wins the Scorpio Races and all the money that comes with it. She wants to help Sean, but she doesn't have enough money to pay off their house and download Corr.

Luckily, nice brother Finn ended up betting on Puck to win. She was a long shot, so he's rolling in dough, and he lends Puck the cash to download Corr. Sean downloads Corr and decides to set him free, believing he'll be happiest at sea. Corr has other plans, though.
