I own Keratoid Devil. Obviously, someone wanted to go to lunch and let that one slip through.

Sounds to me like the author has been in touch w/ Mr. Redmond (who I still think should have won his case BTW - at the time I forwarded him several examples to use in court). I didn't realize he was considering pursuing it further. I think he should.

Date More Minors ?? :dead: What is wrong with people? :lol:

Wouldn't it be great if one of these horses wound up as a Pony Club mount? The instructor: "Suzie, what's your new horse's name?" Suzie: "Hardawn." I'll bet Suzie's parents would get a talking to about that one. :lol:

They missed Peony's Envy! As well as Oh She Hit, Pima Pants, and Hall Lass (which made it through twice.)

Our filly won a race this summer at Canterbury. Whomever puts the owners names in the program or whatever, decided to be cheap with how many characters they wanted to use, I ended up as P Ness
My husband did not see the comedy in it, but my family and friends in the winner circle roared when the announcer blasted my name over the intercom.

I groomed a Standardbred for two years. His name was Nip Pulls. The winners circle was big fun with that one. We were known around the backside as Nip Pulls #1 and 2. Well, at least after the night it rained and we got our pictures taken in the winners circle. Note to self, never, ever, wear a white silk blouse just because you plan to get your picture taken.

(giggles) Um, you do get the chance to choose how your name appears on the program when you put the papers in the office or the horse changes names. It's not usually a matter of saving characters. Your husband might be guilty, so played it off by ignoring it ;) Hubby was upset this year when he first saw the entries come out and they forgot his middle initial (oh heaven forbid!) but as I told him was likely, it was right there in the program like he requested.

Funny enough, I had Panty Raid in an Exacta that I won on Sunday while at Keeneland. I got a good laugh out of the name.
