Not horrible exactly, but I'd like to nominate the 2017 Grand Reward-Marian Sh Temple colt for "Most Unimaginative Name for a 2017 foal"... :?

Bit of backstory...the mare (who is from a nice family...2nd dam is Classy Mirage) had her 1st foal, Manipuler (ARG), in 2009. He was a GSW and track record setter, and is now standing at stud in Argentina (his 2nd crop of foals are arriving this year). Marian Sh Temple was sold in the dispersal of Haras La Quebrada's broodmare band earlier this year. So now we have a full brother to Manipuler (ARG) being named...I'm Manipuler (ARG).

Why do I feel like this colt's going to go through an identity crisis? :lol:

Ugh. At least why not "I'm Not Manipuler?" Honestly, I'd be so thrilled to have a horse to name that I'd be wildly creative!
I ran marathons. I saw the Taj Mahal by Moonlight. I drove Highway 1 in a convertible. I petted Zenyatta.

I find that the SA farms generally name their horses a bit better than this from what I have seen- at least not as bizarre as what is here.
