Storyline

Time for the big horse race. We drop in on the fillies, who gossip in New York accents. That's followed by a pre-race fashion parade. In both of these, Maggie doesn't join in; she runs every year, but suffers from hay fever. The actual race is run, and Maggie is far back in the field. The other horses hear it's going to be a photo finish, though, and they all come to an abrupt stop and pose except Maggie, who keeps running and wins the race.

All The Clichés Making Fun Of Women, Or Should I Say 'Nags'
16 March 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It's the day of the big horse race and the fillies are in their stalls gossiping about another horse and making small talk, such as the cliché comment about "not being able to do a thing with my hair," etc. We other fillies doing the same. For example, one says, "The nerve of the guy. Some crust, I'll say. Beieve me, kid, he asked me out to the feedbag and tells me I eat like a horse."

This catty talk is all over the barn. Some of it is funny, such as "Yeah, dearie, last year that nag ran around with that fish magnate, you know: Seabiscuit."

Every cliché you can think of regarding gossip and puns with horses, are used here in the first half of this animated short. Some of them sound like Mae West. Today, feminists would demand this cartoon be banned for sexism.

One of the entrants is the super-plain, never won-in-her-life "Maggie," whom the others make fun of, so you can take a wild guess who wins the big race.

The second half of this cartoon went from clever to too-corny but it was an appropriate short to be included in the DVD of the Marx Brothers' film, "A day At the Races."
