    I knew a registered thoroughbred called Spaghetti, her son Take Your Sauce, and her daughter Linguini!

    I will always remember a horse that used to run at...what was it, River Downs? Some small track in Ohio, about 10 years ago.

    His name?

    There was also a horse with the unfortunate name Ch*ngoso, which is Spanish for "f**ker." [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_eek.gif[/img]

    When the Jockey Club figured that out, they were forced to change his name.

    I used to think the world was against me. Now I know better...some of the smaller countries are neutral.

    Oh NOOOOOOOOOOO!!! This post just made me laugh out loud. That poor horse!! [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_frown.gif[/img]

    I agree that Ivanavinalot is pretty bad.

    "Judge Smells" and "Smelly" always come to mind when I am thinking about bad names. And I saw another bad name recently when checking results on Equibase. There was a horse named "But." [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif[/img]

    What about:

    Isitingood (get it?)

    Bodacious Tatas

    Spinelessjellyfish

    Icecoldbeeratreds

    I agree about Ivanavinalot, it just isn't right. I don't mind names with words smushed (Songandaprayer I like a lot, I liked She'sastonecoldfox too) but that one is icky.



    Let's see, what others can I think of....

    I was just looking at some of Judge Smells's offspring to see what names they got stuck with and I found possibly the worst ever:

    Skunk Cabbage

    Poor thing!

    LOL, Kinsella - I registered my gelding's show name as Doctor Who with USAEq! It was one of my favorite shows when I was a kid!

    A German Stallion is named *Irish Stew* - I pitied the horse when I first saw his name in the yearling catalog.

    You only have to look up the CANTER sites [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif[/img] I think on New England: *Stinko Miss* yuck!

    Some of the bad names come from the nomenclature, in Germany the foals are named starting with the letter of the Dam: A colt out of an *N* mare by Nebos was first named *Little Nebos* [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif[/img], then later changed to Lebos, quiet a racehorse.

    Another one was *Karin I love you*, cantering around Southwest German track, named after the owners wife. The filly was sold, I don't know however if it coincided with the divorce.

    JER: I didn't like Hoovergethekeys until I heard the story behind the name. The owner had trained his dog Hoover to retrieve his car keys for him and so he would say "Hoover, get the keys." I don't necessarily like the name, but all together it's kind of cute.

    Another one is Tali'sluckybusride, which sounds awful at first, but she was named after the owner's dog Tali. They were either waiting for a bus or walking by when one was stopped and Tali was on the bus and got off and they adopted her. It's a cute story.

    When Mister Frisky was racing, I wanted to root for him but I just couldn't because I hated his name so much. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_razz.gif[/img]

    Here are a few that are interesting but maybe not well known:

    A mare named: One Good Wack......barn name Wacker.

    I owned: I Am Rampage....he was. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif[/img]

    How about the horse named Somfas....remember what that stands for???? [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif[/img]

    I always like the name Judge Smells....I've seen some of his offspring at breed shows and thought it was kinda funny. My mare was bred to him before I bought her and has a son by the lame name of Go Bear [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif[/img]

    Another vote for Buffythecenterfold. Did they really need to show PICTURES on the Breeder's Cup coverage? [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_eek.gif[/img]

    What is "Ivanavinalot" supposed to mean, anyway??

    Buffythecenterfold is probably the worst. Other than names like that Spanish name Lauruffian mentioned, it has to be the worst. How can you name a horse after a naked tramp in a magazine??

    As for some examples of my own, I can't stand names that are just one word repeated three times; i.e., Whywhywhy, Bella Bella Bella, and Roses Roses Roses. They just sound very annoying to me.

    There was a horse racing today in one of the Breeder's Cup races named WhyWhyWhy. I thought that was pretty stupid.
