It's a good thing there is a limit to how long a name can be. ;)

How could you hate Flat Fleet Feet? Isn't that what racehorses have?

Some people have SO little imagination. :( How about Bash the Bimbo? Or they could have done something with "grind" and "bimbo". . . :oops:

Can you tell us what makes this name so horrible? (I tried to look up the word, but my Google/Yahoo results were less than illuminating.) :?

Never mind- for some reason I was thinking of the word "Oink"- ya know like a pig. I read it too fast, apparently. :D

Not surprised...even my Yahoo search kept trying to turn it into 'oink.'
It was either that or the possibility that it was some sort of Hungarian profanity? :P :lol:

the horse linked is oinkus, and oinkus is actually an awful name.

The surprise winner of the Maryland Million Ladies Stakes, at 66-1, Bear Access. It's so close to 'bare as*es" in pronunciation I'm just surprised the Jockey Club let the name go through. It is a nice play on her pedigree, though - by Gators N Bears(I really liked him, may he RIP) out of Media Access, by Devils Bag.

Dongbang Daero translates to 'Eastern Road'.
