Ma Meatloaf (Stay Thirsty x Poovey) was 2nd in the Lady Finger Stakes. Yes, it’s a filly.

Also in the race was 4th place finisher Fat N Bitter[/n] (Old Fashioned x Bustinattheseams).

How did this sibling to Girolamo, Dadydreaming and Supercharger end up with such a “blehk ” name?

Three horses entered in the Iroquois Stakes today-

Drunk as a Skunk c. Midnight Lute x Uqood
Royal Urn c. Kantharos x Born to Royalty
Hog Creek Hustle c. Overanalyze x Candy Fortune

Noodles is nothing compared to this.

"Kantharos" is Greek for a type of drinking cup, so the name kind of makes sense, although why "urn" was chosen rather than "cup," "goblet," "snifter" or some other drinking-related container is a mystery,

This name is especially...frustrating for a number of reasons.

Now it makes sense -- "Ode to a Grecian Urn"! So not a horrible name at all, but a sneaky literary reference.
