Wow, that brings back some memories! He's been retired for a long time now, but he was a pretty decent racer in his day,
especially earlier in his career. I think his name helped attract more fans for him over the years...

Not a Thoroughbred, but found this hilarious ad on craigslist about a horse named Rotten Banana.

I can't help but resuscitate two names from the old thread: Giacomo Strap and You're a Nation.

Those are good for a laugh or two.

There's the nice stakes horse I'm Already Sexy that won this weekend.

Kind of on the same note... Where is good old Stud Muffin these days?

I believe Stud Muffin is retired and being trained in a new career. It's too bad the posts and photos from the "old" forum were lost, because I think there were some pix of him being taken over beginner fences. The handsome grey looked good.

A few years ago, Godolphin had a horse named Skanky Biscuit.

Now that is truly a bad name.

I get some bad names, at least they make some sense and are maybe funny but this one is kinda like they picked to random words and put them together.

There is a horse named Animal Style and every time I see his name I think of that weird song by Bloodhound Gang.

Chicken Thief-----never liked this name even though I get how they came up with it.
Flat Fleet Feet---too hard to say
Lundy's Liability---why name a horse after JT Lundy? :evil:
