Fantastic Horse Names

Every owner has his or her own method of naming a racehorse. Some go simple by going derivative of the horses' parents names. (example: Cat Thief's parents were Storm Cat and Train Robbery). Some shoot for a consistent theme, like the late Allen Paulson's penchant for naming horses after navigational beacons for airplanes (Ajina, Cigar). Some are self-aggrandizing and self-promotions, like Fusao Sekiguchi's Fusaichi Pegasus or any number of Dubai horses. And others ate named for specific places, events or things near and dear to the owner's heart, like Barbaro and Big Brown.

Another type of name is the "current event" name. Occasionally this yields a neat name for a horse, and we've seen a pair of those in Saratoga: namely, the Eliot Spitzer-themed Lov Guv and Ninth Client. Fantastic. But the best part isn't that these names exist. The owner of theses steeds isn't IEAH Stables (Big Brown's connections), a bunch of disgruntled Wall Streeters, or some wiseass from Brooklyn, it's...

Marylou Whitney! Yes, the fabled socialite, philanthropist and Dame of Saratoga. We had no idea that she had such hatred for our ex-Gov that she'd blatantly name her colts after his torrid affairs. We applaud this type of naming, and hope that she continues to annoy those that have wronged her.
