| Predictable
Gallopin' Gals takes all the tired, predictable jokes with the premise 'fillies are just like teenage girls' you can think of and wraps them into a 7-minute cartoon taking place on a race track. (Case in point: "I suppose he still gives her that old line about a woman's place is in the stable.") The horses talk about their guy problems, they gossip about other fillies, and they are worried that they will not look good when photographed.

I will admit that the coloration is appealing to the eye, there are a few vaguely amusing lines (- "But they say she's good on a muddy track." – "Why not? She's been slinging it for years."), and the excited narrator does a fine job during the final race, but overall, Gallopin' Gals is quite dire, and far from the best 40s cartoons I have seen.
