We Blame Feminism for This

...once free of The Man, who has been exploiting her labor for his own glory all these years, she galloped, liberated, like the wind.

I imagine it is easier to win if you're 80 pounds lighter. :)

On the other (whip) hand.

Clippedy-clop,
First 'cross the line with the man on top.

'twould make the better story
'twould be her greater glory

If, whether filly or mare, she ran,
Handicapped with both - lead and a man.

From now on, we should run all races without jockeys. Just put the mares out there and let them compete. (We'll have to exclude the horses. They ruin everything.)

And we'd see that more easily if we didn't get caught up in all this zero sum game, gender war BS :p

Very nice, George!

If you want to see that, just hang around the pasture instead of the racetrack. :)

Yeah, strangely enough people don't spend much time placing bets on how mares will randomly run around a pasture! Maybe that jockey guy really is contributing something to the process.
