CAPTION:  FILEP (jockey): “We’ll ask this lady—Madame, wouldn’t you agree when picking a selection, the JOCKEY’S STATS are by superior a reference tool then the mere ‘Past Performances’ of an ordinary race filly?”  DIVA (horse): “NO NO NO! It’s about the Filly! Pick from the PP’s! Say ‘THE FILLY’! You’d pick ME!’   LADY RACE FAN: “Hmmmmmm…. And all this time I’ve just been betting my grand-babies birthdays…”
