    Default My favorite name... ever

    This might be a lame post but, I just have to say, I see this mare's name in every catalog that comes and I LOVE her name: "I Died Laughing."

    I just love "out of I Died Laughing." It just cracks me up.

    I know, I'm a dork. Forgive me.

    That's a good one. We could use some light hearted fun around here too.

    There's a colt who runs at Aqueduct named Arrrrr (Regal Classic x Lemons Ain't Limes). Methinks his peeps had been watching Pirates of the Caribbean before filing with the JC.

    I watched him run earlier this month on TVG and even the Big A announcer was having a great time with the name. Perhaps the owner was also a fan of Steve the Pirate from the movie Dodgeball

    Now if only he could have a son named Matey

    The stable would have hours of fun with that one and new vistors: ".. now go down there and tack up Arrrr, Matey" ..

    There's a 4 yr old by Hennessey running named...

    "Claim Me Please"

    As of the last time I saw its results, no one had claimed it!!!

    Speaking of running around, I never did see in Australia if they ever found the lost race horse that got loose from his stable by the name of Not Abandoned

    News of his disappearance (and the name) finally started to make its way around the world:

    'Not Abandoned abandons us'

    ... I guess he’s still bitter about that whole “gelding” thing. Thoroughbreds are so sensitive!
    Australia's The Age 2-16-07 "Pride of Alice, he's joined the wild bush horses"

    It just gives rise to some Monty Python skit. Perhaps it was life imitating art of sorts with a spin on the most recent episode of Wildfire

    Anyhow I digress and back to the discussion at hand!

    All great names...however, I just remembered one that belonged to a steeplechase trainer I used to work for...don't love it, but it's odd....

    Retarded Earthworm

    Yup, that's the horses name!

    Full Stride, that mare wouldnt, by chance be by Die Laughing?

    I have two interesting names to add:
    1) Left At Sale, and he was. No Saled and was just left there. He was 'rescued', had a name change and went on to race.
    2) Get Me Papers. His dam was sold, and the seller had 'lost' the papers, never did find them but it got sorted and duplicate reg was issued just before the deadline for registration. He is a pretty decent race horse, far exceeded expectations, obviously got speed from his sire, not the dam.

    Old, old, old story but goodie. I read that Colonel Bradley of Idle Hour Farm fame was just getting rolling, not a big name yet. He named a horse Bad News in the hopes that it would travel fast. Turned out to be his best yet by far, and he went on to name all his horses B names (Black Toney, etc.)

    But I love the idea of a race horse named Bad News so it would travel fast.

    I saw a filly running last year in a Charity race in England.

    Her name was "Redhotfillypepper"

    I thought that was too cool.

    Perhaps she should hook up with Distorted Humor.

    A coincidence--

    I Died Laughing is the dam of the winner of the 4th race today at Laurel. I saw the chart and was like, "Hey! I've heard that name before!"
