Bad omen?

While campaigning in Kentucky, Hillary Clinton thought it would be cute to tell voters to put their money in the Kentucky Derby on the lone filly in the field, saying "I want everybody to place a little money on the filly". This was the first female contestant even in the race in 9 years. Seeing how this horse was a 20:1 odd to win, it seemed an odd thing to say, since it seemed that the lone filly was destined to lose in her analogy. But it was actually worse.

I just saw the race results on CNN. The filly actually ended up finishing second behind the male horse, named "Big Brown".
But then shortly after crossing the line in second place, sadly the filly broke both front ankles, collapsed, and had to be put down there on the track.
