I just wish American Pharaoh and Harvey's Little Goil weren't in the same sentence. Ugh. Nice win, but that needs to go to the horrible names thread.
I ran marathons. I saw the Taj Mahal by Moonlight. I drove Highway 1 in a convertible. I petted Zenyatta.

Its not a great name. I wonder if breeder Harvey Clarke was a fan of Harley Quinn from Batman or if his family named the filly after he passed away in January 2019. If it was the latter, which I would assume, there is probably some kind of sentimental reason for the name. Maybe he called the filly Little Girl and the family or even a grandchild, wanted to name her Harvey's Little Girl in remembrance but that is to many letters, so they tried to throw a Harley Quinn spin on it.

I'm not super versed in superhero stuff so could someone explain how this related to Harley Quinn?

Maybe it was from one of the Batman animated series but to me, she is associated with goil, as soon as I saw it I thought Harley Quinn. She had a strong accent and called herself Mistah J's Goil. If you google it, its all Harley Quinn pictures.

Harvey's Lil Goil romped by 7.5 lengths in the Busanda (Ungraded, Black Type). The final time was very slow (1.54.49 for 9f) but she won geared down. Who knows what she's capable of under pressure.

American Butterfly finished 2nd, beaten by a head, in a 6f AOC on the dirt at Oaklawn on 2/2/2020. He was not in for a tag.

The 2017 Spice Island colt has been gelded and Jockey Club registration says an Export has been received. Anyone know where? My guess would be Hong Kong. This was the really expensive breeze up colt.

No idea but he had a name submitted yesterday (it hasn't been accepted yet) - Manilenyo.
He isn't on the Hong Kong horse list yet. https://racing.hkjc.com/racing/informat ... tType=SIRE

More like an "All in the Family" spin! The dam is Gloria S. (Tapit-Arch's Gal Edith, by Arch) and Gloria Stivic was the married name of Archie and Edith Bunker's daughter on the classic '70s sitcom. Archie would often address Gloria as "little goil." I got the connection immediately when I saw the pedigree.
