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).

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

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.

How is that a horrible name? I can understand, sort of, the objections to meat-related names (although I still see nothing wrong with Porterhouse, who was an outstanding runner), but how does Tomato Bisque offend? I remember a son of Wajima out of Night Staker (not Stalker, Staker) named Teriyaki Stake in New York back in the '80s. I liked that name and its origin. I don't know why Macho Uno-Dazzling Contrast adds up to Tomato Bisque. Chances are it's the owner's favorite soup, or it conjures up some pleasant memory for someone involved with the horse.

Since no horses have ever been harmed in the preparation of tomato bisque, to me, it's a decent name for a racehorse. Although if I were doing the naming, it would be Lobster Bisque.
