English in a Minute – Dark Horse:黑马

Welcome to English in a Minute.

Horses are beautiful animals and can be many different colors.

But what could this mean?

Dark Horse.

Did you watch the film awards show?

I cannot believe "A Slug's New Body" won for Best Children's Science Movie in a Foreign Language.

I didn't know that was a category.

Oh, it was definitely a dark horse.

I thought "Cat Camp" would win. Didn't you?

Oh yeah, Of course.

A "dark horse" is someone or something that's not expected to win. But sometimes, they do!

We use "dark horse" when talking about sports, politics or as we heard, movie awards.

And that's English in a Minute.
