Kentucky Sunrise finds Nealy once again hellbent on producing a Derby winner and on showing the world that she's not a quitter. Newly married to lawyer Hatch Littletree, and with her daughter Emmie running the family's famous stables, Blue Diamond Farms, Nealy should finally be content. But returning to Blue Diamond Farms for a family reunion sends Nealy reeling. Emmie has let the farm slide, and she has picked a small, gutsy colt to send to the Derby - a nice horse, but clearly the wrong one. Suddenly Nealy is back in the game, ready to prove she's not too old to back a winner - even if it means taking on another colt as her personal project. Nealy's determined not to let Emmie's poor judgment undermine the reputation of the business she worked so hard to build. But the damage to her relationship with her daughter may be irreparable, until a stranger walks into her life, holding out the promise of hope for the future.
Nealy Coleman Diamond, the proud owner of Blue Diamond Farms, is a tough and demanding horsewoman who makes it her business to always win. When Nealy semi-retires, she cedes management of the farm to her daughter, Emmie--on the condition that Emmie live up to Nealy's own exacting standards. Emmie, an excellent horsewoman in her own right, has her own way of doing things but her style, which is very different from her mother's, soon disappoints the persnickety Nealy. Determined to prove to her mother that she has what it takes, Emmie enters into a bitter rivalry with Nealy to determine which of them will establish the future of the famous Blue Diamond Farm.
