Reminds of the horse I saw racing a few years ago named Drinktilshespretty. ;)
And then there's Clothes Fall Off (Daaher-Tequilas Dayjur, by Dayjur), named after a country song "Tequila Makes Her Clothes Fall Off." Won a race last month at Belmont.

Although not a TB, there was an interesting name for a pacer at Cal Expo last night - Rikybrnthegaragdwn (Ricky burn the garage down). There's got to be a story behind this name somewhere....

Heather in Leather (Spanish Drummer x Little Nita) - always cracked me up because either it is a wink wink nudge nudge double entendre kind of thing - while also working well because... horses do wear leather and it is the most normal thing ever.

MORTICIA (f, 3, Twirling Candy - Halloween Party, by Mr. Greeley) won the Coronation Cup S. today at Saratoga.

That deserves some finger snaps!

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

Har har. . .but who even remembers Taylor and Burton? (Although I prefer the 1930's version with Claudette Colbert, so go figure!)
I ran marathons. I saw the Taj Mahal by Moonlight. I drove Highway 1 in a convertible. I petted Zenyatta.

The favorite in the upcoming 3rd at Del Mar, a MSW for two-year-old fillies, is a daughter of Into Mischief named Gas Station Sushi. :oops:
What did she do to deserve that? :roll:

ETA: She won impressively, but I still hate the name. Giving it the classic Belmont call test; "...and Gas Station Sushi is moving like a tremendous machine..." is pretty much a name 'fail.' :P :lol:

Based on literally everything in this photo, she is definitely her father's daughter.

Abyssinian 2016 f Cairo Prince x Shesakitty
Pretty clever name since Abyssinia was the ancient name used for Ethiopia/the Ethiopian Empire which overlapped/neighboured the Kingdom of Kush that once invaded and occupied both upper and lower Egypt.
And of course most people know of the Abyssinian cat. I hope whomever buys her keeps her name.

I don't know the rules in the US, but in the UK, there is a seven syllable limit. This name actually meets that.

With a salute to the Temptations and their hit, "Papa Was A Rollin' Stone", comes this little Creative Cause filly, Papawasarollinroan. I like it. She races tomorrow (8/30/18) at Presque Isle Downs in Race 1.

A horse I've been trying to keep up with since I saw him go through the ring as a yearling for $1,000 ended up with a really good name. He also made his first start recently, finishing 9th at Gulfstream Park.

Poitier c. Mr. Sidney x Quinciana (Dixie Union).

When I was adding a photo of Poitier to Pedigreequery, I noticed another horse, an Aussie, with the name listed. The sire's name is what makes it clever (because of Guess Who's Coming to Dinner)

Poitier c. 1987. What a Guest x Rose Consort (Rock Roi)
