Gallopin' Gals is a 1940 MGM Cartoon directed by William Hanna and Joseph Barbera.

The film is a typical animated screwball comedy made in the style of such films as The Women (1939), except for the fact that the characters are fillies at the Kentucky Derby with New York accents, gossiping about some of the other contestants.


A lonely shy horse named Maggie wants to win a race. But she has never won a race in her life and also suffers from hay fever. During the race, the other horses competing are distracted by a photo finish. They fall short of the finish line in second place simultaneously while the picture is taken and Maggie crosses in front of them, winning the race.


  • The cartoon was re-released in the mid-50s.
