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.
A filly named Ruffian...

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'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:

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.

I've never liked the name Hoof Hearted.

Not sure it's horrible, but I grin about it... there's an Aussie gelding by the lovely Denman named "I Bought A Horse"... he's not much, but he's honest. LOL

Nomorerichblondes just won the Dubai Oaks. I'm guessing the owner has his fill in his harem, and is branching out?

Not too horrible a name, but a 3 YO filly named Morticia won a turf sprint stakes race at Gulfstream last Saturday. With that name I had to bet on her, and now I can't get the theme song to "The Adams Family" out of my head. :)

Morticia is out of Halloween Party. Maybe the owner has fond memories of a Morticia costume?

While checking out some horses in Argentina, I noticed that a soon-to-be 2YO Sebi Halo colt is named Soylent Green. :(

At least it's people, not horses.

I'm kind of surprised that one got OK'd by the Jockey Club.
