Gallopin' Gals is a 1940 American one-reel Technicolor animated film directed by William Hanna and Joseph Barbera and produced by Fred Quimby and Rudolf Ising. It was released by Metro-Goldwyn Mayer in October 26, 1940 alongside the movie Hullabaloo. The announcer at the race was played by Harlow Wilcox.
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. The underdog of the story is a shy, lonely horse named Maggie who has never won a race in her life and 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.
