Pink Elephant (Activist x Delirium) was second in the Mrs. Penney Stakes at Parx.

I'm assuming she's named for the "Pink Elephants On Parade" scene in the original animated Dumbo.

Possibly, or just the from original meaning that was around for quite awhile before that, given the dam's name. 8-)

Adirondack winner, Perfect Alibi, comes from a long list of good female names that all tie together, going back to her 3rd dam, Missed The Wedding.

Missed The Wedding --> Rumors Are Flying --> No Use Denying --> Perfect Alibi

Constantinople (Galileo x One Moment In Time) was second in the G2 Great Voltigeur Stakes today. He's full to Bondi Beach.

His second dam has a rather...interesting name. Hotelgenie Dot Com is apparently MG1P.

Devil - 2017 c. Siyouni X Burma Sea, by Lope de Vega.

Nice looking up and comer owned by the Wertheimers... the name isn't even a play on words, or that clever I guess... but what does one have to do to earn such a moniker?

Filly Jean King - 2yo by Brethren out of Alachua

Alachua itself is an interesting name choice, had me thinking "did they mean the county or the town?" It's less than an hour north of Ocala and has a number of horse farms.
