If you trained both Dragonites against the same foes, the differences in stats is due to the IV's, not the gender.
IVs is numbers given to all Pokemon when caught or hatched. They range from 0-31 and increases the stat of a Pokemon by that number. It will be most noticeable at Lv 100 but it is very much present at lower levels.
Your female Dragonite most likely have better IVs than the male, resulting in it having better stats.
