Win Hands Down Origins

To win hands down means to win by an enormous margin.

Origins: If a racehorse jockey is so far ahead of the competition that there is no danger he will be passed again, he can drop the reins and his hands and let the horse finish the race without spurring it on.

With the Belmont Stakes coming up this weekend, this is what you wish from your horse.
