lately I’ve been engulfed with the NBA Playoffs and some NFL catchup information. But I took some time recently and thought a lot about horse racing. I have to admit I don’t know a lot about it but I do have some thoughts. None intelligent unfortunately.
I see that the Belmont Stakes is coming up. There’s a horse in the race that a lot of people like and the horse’s name is Mine That Bird. That’s a great name. Some other names I like are Rachel Alexandra, a great girly name for a horse that could kill you with one kick. You also might get a chance to root for Mr. Hot Stuff or Chocolate Candy, a horse my wife would bet on in a flat minute. Ruminating on this and the odds on chance that one day I’ll be in the market for Belmont Tickets or even Kentucky Derby tickets I started looking for unusual horse names. Here’s what I’ve found:
Gotta Pee – That’s what I’ll be saying if I ever get to the Kentucky Derby and drink a lot of mint juleps.
Onewaytickettothe gluefactory – Now there’s an owner with optimism in his heart.
Shergars Missing Foot – How did that happen? there’s got to be a story there.
Aerosmith – Would riding this horse be like the Rock and Roller Coaster at Disneyworld?
Al – I’d like to ride a horse named Al. It appeals to my blue collar roots.
Ancient Orange – Where did this come from?
Finally, why hasn’t someone named their horse “Horse With No Name” or has somebody already done that?
