Yorkiepoo Princess reminds me of two other fillies with too-cute names from the '90s: Poopsie and Sweetzie. Both were entered in, and scratched from, the same race at Saratoga one day when I was there, and Durkin gave those names a hilarious, exaggerated treatment in his announcement of race changes. "Scratch Poooooop-siiiiiieeee, and Sweeeeeet-ziiiiiieeee."

I kind of like it personally, it sounds cool but then I sometimes use it as slang to express such overwhelming joy or excitement that I could pass out/die from exuberance.
I could also see someone who is a big fan of medical/hospital dramas and shows being attracted to the name.

ETA: there's also a movie coming out soon called "The Flatliners" which i think is about a group of Emergency First Respondents or Trauma Surgeons, Icr.

Also, Flatlined is by Flatter, so at least the name's not completely out of the blue. Of course, being able to say "graded stakes winner" makes any name sound better! :D

To continue with questionable medically themed horse names, there's a 7YO in Argentina named Alergico. So far, the only thing he seems to be allergic to is winning, as he's 0 for 41.

Sequel to the 1990 "Flatliners," about medical students experimenting with near-death. Julia Roberts and Kiefer Sutherland were in it.

Wasn't sure if it was related at all or not. Only thing I know about the project was that an actress I like is in it. Thanks for the info!

I've found it easier to tear up tickets at 8/1 instead of 8/5.

I'm sure there was a Clothesfelloff at maybe Gulfstream today, and I wondered how that got through. Wasn't there a horse named something like Oliver Klozoff a few years ago? :lol:
I ran marathons. I saw the Taj Mahal by Moonlight. I drove Highway 1 in a convertible. I petted Zenyatta.

Lol, her name is Clothes Fall Off ('12 Daaher x Tequila's Dayjur). She ran in the Barbara Fritchie this weekend - finished 3rd (2nd last year). She's in McLaughlin's barn. She's actually a nice little mare with some graded stakes placing against nice company and I'm hoping there's a graded win somewhere out there for her this year.

There is a country song by Joe Nichols called Tequila Makes Her Clothes Fall Off. I'm guessing whoever named her liked that song.
