Getting Girled

Buncha studs got girled at the Preakness.

But I don't like horse racing anyways.

I don't like racing, but I've been watching this little filly for a month... she's amazing. I was excited when they announced she'd be racing in the Preakness. Her babies will go for a fortune.

attendance down around 30k or so. They decided it should be just a horse race and did away with the freakness party in the infield. Bad move for a bankrupt racetrack. Can a jockey win the triple crown on different horses?

You say that like it's a bad thing.

Ahh, I remember when I used to "girl" the guys my first two years HS in track and field. I loved it when they'd be running along and I'd just blow past them and they couldn't catch up...

But then I grew boobs and running became horribly painful. I still hate running to this day because the boob pain has not gotten any better, even with nice sports bras and whatever.

No, he can't. Once he chose to ride Rachel Alexandra, he forfeited his chance at winning the Triple Crown--that's how much he believes in this filly. He rode her in a race the day before the Kentucky Derby, and she won by 20 lengths without having to even encourage her.
