While many people in the horse racing community are ecstatic after a weekend that saw just the 13th Triple Crown winner ever, not everyone is all smiles and elation. In fact, one horse in particular is quite sad this morning.
“I don’t know, at my age it’s starting to feel like my best days are behind me,” Ann Coulter told the press as she stepped away from the track at the Belmont Stakes. “I ran hard. It was one of the best races of my life, and I just couldn’t catch up to Justify.”
Coulter said she thinks she’s figured out what went wrong for her at the Belmong.
“I was coming around that first turn, when I had an idea for a really funny, super hilarious tweet where I imply that all Muslims are terrorists and Mexicans and Muslims are both the same because they start with the Letter M,” Coulter laughed and neighed. “And then I started thinking about how if I could just get my way and round up all the brown people, I’d have won today no problem because none of the other horses would have jockeys!”
By the time she finished her tremendously racist thought, the race was over, Coulter said.
“The next thing I know, it’s all over, and I’m still just standing on the track alone with my racist thoughts,” Coulter said. “It was all over so quickly!”
Coulter says that she’ll probably give it one more shot next year.
“I suppose I’ve got to get to a point where I’m content to just be racist when I’m done running races,” Coulter said. “I came to racing because it seemed just natural for a racist to race, you know what I mean? But after all these years of never quite getting the big prize, I’m just not even sure lighting a cross on fire after a race is enough to cheer me up anymore.”
She’ll make a decision whether to end her racing career by the end of the year, Coulter said.
