I'm not sure why Clinton thought that emphasizing her gender by doing stupid shit like backing a female horse of all things was going to help, but I can't argue with the results.
Clinton backs Eight Belles, a filly, for the Kentucky Derby. The race ended with Eight Belles euthanized after she literally tripped over her own feet, breaking her legs. The winner was a young stud named Big Brown.
