Designated Driver, by Overdriven. The dam Far Sighted Sal also has a clever name, as her sire is Distant View.

Aqueduct 9th race Sunday, ENOLA GAY won't be a bomber of a price but should win on Veteran's Day weekend.

Note.....a re-use of the exact same name from back in the early 80's Enola Gay ran on the SoCal circuit and triggered one of my largest exacta wagers to date, and that was back in the days when $5 was the minimum wager :D
I've found it easier to tear up tickets at 8/1 instead of 8/5.

Not necessarily clever but my new favorite horse is Andy Dufresne, who won today at Navan over hurdles and is now undefeated in 3 starts.

I just found this out today and it definitely gave me a good laugh! I wager some of you already know the story of Potoooooooo.

From Wikipedia:
The origin of his name has several different versions. According to the most common, Abingdon intended to call the young colt "Potato" and instructed the stable boy to write the name on a feed bin. The stable boy spelled the name as "Potoooooooo" (Pot followed by 8 "o"s), which so amused Abingdon that he adopted the spelling.

Not necessarily a clever name as such but a funny story nonetheless! Pot8O’s was actually a very good racehorse and went on to sire some important stallions of the breed including Waxy.

Fans of the late comedian Garry Shandling (“It’s Garry Shandling’s Show,” “The Larry Sanders Show”) may take note of a namesake horse, Shandling, entered in Sunday’s fifth race. The 3-year-old gelded son of Distorted Humor will be making his second start for Little Red Feather Racing and trainer Phil D’Amato.

Not necessarily clever, but Wrecking Crew is named that because in the movie The Sting, there's a scene where you hear the call "Wrecking Crew wins by 5."

My friend once picked I'll Have Another to win as she assumed he was named with alcohol in mind...she was pretty disappointed when she found out his name was ACTUALLY referencing cookies
