This could be the start of something big.

Should make for an interesting photo-finish. ...And "Frisky Boy" wins by a head, oh wait, that's not a head.

I should have taken " Headline 101 " in college. As it is, I have no idea how that translates into English.

It's a shame so many publishers have fired their copyeditors.

@Clankie - You and me both!

Excuses, excuses.

Monty Python's Headline Translation Service
Frisky = randy, nudge, nudge, wink, know what I mean?
Henry Dwyer-trained = horse training facility named after founder Henry Dwyer
2YO = the age of the subject horse
Jumps Out = .. of the starting gate
With Erection = this should be obvious
At Geelong = the racetrack in Australia where the trial was being conducted

"Fifth Leg" opened for Neil Young and Crazy Horse.

Probably also humming Mr. Ed's hit song "Pretty Little Filly with the Ponytail."

So this must be how the equestrian racing term 'furlong' originated.

I wasn't trained by Henry Dwyer but pretty sure this happened to me when I was two too.
